Hello are you still there?
Expert:  DrThomasMd replied 1 year ago.
HelloIt is not normal to get swelling.This call could have been an allergic reaction.Of course have your doctor check you tomorrow.It does not look serious, but if they are spreading it can be autoimmune disease or infection. In this case go to the ER. OK, so you might have more questions or want to give me more information: Please use reply to expert if you have further questions.
