Dermatologist 's  Response
hello dear
you are suffering from a condition called as angiooedema.
It is similar to hives but apart from skin lesions there occur oedema in throat , swelling around eye lids and lips.

there is no permanent cure for this, it can only be controlled.

please meet a dermatologist and get a prescription

thank you
