I get these swellings that very in size, from the size of a golf ball to a softball. the larger the area of swelling the more the swelling protrudes. The swelling last for about 24 hours and the area the swelling was on hurts for about 24 hours after that. The swellings are warm to the touch and I get them in random places on my body, from my feet to arms to face. I also get these little red bumps but i think they are from the heat. Any halp with this whould be great. Thank-you

  • It sounds like hives to me. Maybe you have an allergy or have newly developed one? I have hives also, but in my case they're autimmune, so I'm basically allergic to myself. Benedryl should help or a prescription antihistimine like zyrtec. You might consider keeping a food diary for a bit to see if you can find any association with foods that would indicate a food allergy. I hope it helps. Good luck!
