Swelling in right hand, spread to ear lobes, left eye lid, scalp. Causes and cure for swelling?

HI! My husband has been having swelling in various body parts since Wednesday. It started in his right hand . By Thursday it had spread to his earlobes, left eye lid, and left hand. He has a few swollen spots on his scalp that have moved around. His right hand had improved, but the swelling has return to his middle finger on that hand and his left hand is huge. His earlobes have returned to normal. The left eyelid continues to be swollen. Any ideas what it could be and how we can treat this?

Hi Dear,
Welcome to the platform of Health Care Magic
It appears to be that your husband has developed subcutaneous Emphysema.
Detailed history like any cough, chest pain, fever and its duration, history of any chest infection is appreciable to pinpoint the exact problem.
One should consult general surgeon immediately to get diagnosis and treatment.
Hope your query is answered
