Customer Question

Sudden swelling of left cheek, beside corner of my mouth. I tend to have allergies and asthma-like symptoms at night, but this is different. I have taken now 2 Benedryl but not noticing a change. My throat is clear but it's starting to be hard to swallow due to swelling in mouth. It's late and I don't want to go to ER if I don't have to (will have to wake whole family). Does this sound like something else? I haven't eaten for several hours, though I just brushed my teeth before this happened.
JA: The Doctor will need to help you with this. Is there anything else important you think the Doctor should know?
Customer: I don't think so. I have had to go to ER for breathing emergencies before, but this is different.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Doctor about your situation and then connect you two.

Hi there ...

Thank you for the question ...

Nothing is important more than your life , you should awake your family and don't wait for any home remedy .

Immediately go to ER and get IV Steroid this could be evolving allergic reaction that can extend to your throat .

So please go to ER .

Good luck .

Thanks .
