Swelling in the area beneath the skin, typically can rise from an allergic reaction, but it can also be hereditary. There are different types of angioedema, for example drug induced, allergic, and idiopathic (which means there is no clear reason why it could be happening)
Symptoms include swelling in the face, hands, feet, and genitals.
Treatments include EpiPen injection, and antihistamines. For hereditary angioedema treatment would be concentrated more on the C1 inhibitor which is what generally people are missing.
Dr. Zarei is one of the finest. most expert, caring physicians I have ever had, maybe THE finest, and her team, including Naren and Michelle, is wonderful.
Amazing physician and staff! Dr. Zarei always takes the time to explain diagnosis and treatment – to ensure proper patient compliance!
Dr Zarei is very caring, kind, and a very good physician. She takes a detailed history, and takes into account my other current issues. She will follow up, and is very proactive about taking care of you as a person and not just the disease. Will be a patient of hers forever. Her assistant Nerin is amazing as well.
