Hello and hope you are doing well.

It could be an allergic reaction. Normally, in cases where allergies are present, the person will experience: hives ( raised red blotches, itchy or painful ) swelling of the tongue/ lips/ throat and sometimes breathlessness. I would suggest you obtain a referral to an allergist or an ENT who does allergy testing.  That is the only way to reliably know what is causing the allergic reaction.  Some allergies can be life-threatening as they can precipitate anaphylactic shock in which the swelling can be so severe that it impairs the ability to breathe.  Therefore, I would suggest you see someone as soon as possible.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
