My dad turns red on his face, arm, hands & chest, and when he pushes on the skin you can see it turn white, so I think he swells up too, but we can't figure out what is causing this? ANY IDEAS??

Thanks!!!

  • hiI think you must encourage him to see a doctor.I have seen people turn red and swell and it is often due to kidney problems.I am not a doctor but a real doctor who could see him and ask the appropriate questions for example about his drinking habits then perform a few blood tests should be able to diagnose him easily. If he does drink a lot of alcohol then get him to the doctors even faster.Best wishes for the good health of your father.
