I have had some very strange symptoms. First, my face and lips were swollen only on the left side of my face, very red and itchy but no bumps or raised areas. It was gone in about two days. Afterward, I had the same symptoms in my right hand: swollen, red, itchy palm and it "moved" across my palm. Again, it disappeared in about 48 hours. "It" next showed up on the opposite wrist; same symptoms and duration. Next, I developed the itchy-swelly (for lack of a better name) on my ring finger only for the same 48 hours or so, and most recently it has developed where I sit. I wish I were joking.
I'm not on any meds except vitamins (which I take hit-or-miss), calcium (daily). I was taking a hoodia supplement but have abstained from taking anything else while this is going on.
The only change in routine has been to bring my plants inside. I suspected an allergic reaction of sorts, but it does not respond to antihistamines and topical ointments don't help much either.
Any ideas? I am concerned about where it will turn up next.
