Swollen face, lip and ear

My husband woke the other morning with a swollen nose, as the day went on the inner cheeks near his nose became swollen. The next morning his eyes and forehead were also swollen and very red and painful. He has seen a doctor who has told him that it is an allergic reaction to the sunscreen he used that weekend (we have recently moved to Australia from England) his doctor has prescribed hydrocortisone acetate cream, prednisolone and zyrtec. It seems that as soon as one area goes down another area swells, last night is eyes went down but a lump then formed in his earlobe which has resulted in his whole ear being swollen, red and painful. Is there any advice you can give me as to what it could be? or if there is any other way of treating it so the swelling goes down quicker? Any suggestions would be appreciated.
