Hello and welcome to HCM

The blood examination reveals a normal differential count.
Please post the total leucocyte counts (TLC) again.
The frequent swelling on face , throat or other parts of body can be due some kind of allergy.
Try to observe whether you are getting this swelling after consuming some particular type of food.
Swelling of this type can also occur after an insect bite.

Besides these causes there are other causes too eg angioneurotic edema. It is caused by deficiency of certain type of protein in body.

Consult your doctor for correct diagnosis after appropriate investigations.

Thank you
