Customer Question
Hi, my husband is...

Hi, my husband is having a weird swelling problem. His hands, palms and backs of hands, for the last three days have been swollen and very itchy. He applied anti itch cream with 1% hydro init. Today his hands are fine but his upper lip is swollen. What should we do as we can not put that cream on his lip.

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with this? Does anything in particular seem to make the itch better or worse?

No, the itch is not present in his lip. But it is big.He recently had fussion back surgery. But we went to his dr. yesterday and they said it was not connected and was probably exzema.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

We went to the dr. yesterday.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
