What do inflammation and swelling on the face indicate?

I just experienced a sudden surge of heat and redness on my face, neck, arms, torso... I felt extreme heat and somewhat swelling. I m a 63 year old female. It s nothing similar to hot flashes. It s much more extreme than that. About an hour ago I took some vitamin E, D, and a B complex. I ve taken these often, but this seems like an allergic reaction.

Hi

Welcome to HealthcareMagic!

For allergic reaction you should take tab Levocetrizine 5 mg two times and tab Ranitidine 150 mg two times for 5 days. You will get relief from first day itself.

Hope your BP, sugar and kidney function and thyroid status are normal.

Take Care!
