I had a some sort of allergic reaction last week where my face and eyes swelled. How can I figure out what causes it ?

See an allergist: If this was a one time reaction, then you may not be able to tell what caused it. However, if is an ongoing problem, then seek the help of a board certified allergist to help you find the cause of this problem.

Swelling around the eyes is a fairly common area as are the lips and tongue. Agree with above; an allergist can review many different potential triggers and perhaps even test for specific triggers in an effort to prevent this from happening again.

Not sure: It is a reaction ...But allergic hard to tell without seeing him. I would stop it for now and all the prescribing physician.

Quite possible: avoid it as well as any other of the ingredients on the box, rather use an alternative going forward. Hope this is helpful.
