Facial Edema

What Is Facial Edema And How To Treat It? Read Here.

About:

Swelling within or beneath the skin due to the accumulation of serous fluid.

Facial swelling is a common clinical problem in pediatric patients [1].

- Usually self-diagnosable
- Can be treated by a medical professional
- Lab testing or imaging rarely required
- Short-term: resolves within days to weeks

Facial edema, also known as facial swelling, can occur for a number of reasons. Allergy is the most common reason and facial edema due to allergens primarily occurs around the eyes. In rare situations, facial swelling can be a sign of anaphylaxis, which is a medical emergency that requires immediate treatment. Other causes can be infections, abscess as well as hyperthyroidism. The swelling can be dangerous if it is accompanied by severe pain, difficulty in breathing and causes further infection.

Ages affected: children to adults

Symptoms:
