My daughter is 15. She has been experiencing some random swelling the last couple months. Usually her fingers swell, random fingers on both hands, but she's also had knots?? in her feet that are red and hurt. And the other day her tongue swelled. All of these things only last a few hours. When the swelling occurs in her hands and feet they are itchy.
Benadryl seems to help some. Im taking her to the doctor next week, but usually when I get ready to take her, the symptoms are gone.
I'm thinking it's got to be a contact or food allergy and we've started a journal of everything that she ingests. We can't seem to figure out what is causing this.
My question is, will a doctor be able to pin point it if we have no leads on what is causing this? And if anyone has suggestions on ways I can help her pin point it, I would greatly appreciate it.
