It started of with little red dots on my arms or legs. From time to time and then it would go away. Recently, my entire legs had red bumps, big blotches that burned. Only my ankles itched. Arms had spots but no physical pain. Swollen ankles, palms, and knees. I had trouble walking and it burned in the shower. I went to doctors and they said it was most likely an allergy reaction but swelling doesn't occur. They still told me to go to dermatologist and allergist to clarify. Does anyone have similar reaction or have any suggestions, have any idea on what it might be?

  • I gotten random swelling on and off since 2007. It starts like a mosquito bite bump, then it becomes bigger to a big swelling, i've seen many doctors allergists, endocrinologist, etc and no one can diagnose me, they call it (idiopathic angioedema). The swelling stopped during my pregnancy and then it is coming up again. I cant tell when it will happen again, i just know that i feel really tired and drained when im getting it... I need a cure to this! Im a soldier and i have traveled a lot, maybe some kind of exposure? Bacteria? Chemicals? I need to know
