The swelling you describe may be of a type called angioedema that is commonly associated with hives and can involve one's face, tongue, extremities or genitalia. It involves deeper layers of skin and usually does not itch, but can be painful; burning, stinging, or dull. The cause of it is felt to be the same that causes the associated hives. You should discuss you’re your doctor your suspicions of what might be triggering your hives.
