Angioedema can occur anywhere on the body and is characterised by a deep swelling of the skin caused by a build up of excess fluid, usually lasting for 1 to 3 days. The condition is closely related to urticaria where developed welts are itchy, whereas angioedema does not typically come with a feeling of itchiness. There are a number of factors that can cause a flare up of angioedema including reactions to drugs such as ACE inhibitors, immune system issues, allergic reactions and a genetic predisposition. Angioedema will often present on the face but is also common on the hands, feet and genitals.
