Angioedema: There can be many reasons for the swelling you describe ranging from an allergic reaction to food or medicine; it may be due to an autoimmune release of histamine; or it may be due to an inflammatory mediator called bradykinin. It's important to know the underlying cause as it will change treatment. How long has it been there? has it happened before? Do you have hives? Have you tried any meds?

Consult doctor: The description of swelling of hands ,wrist,and bump chick could be due to allergy . as you do not have any other symptoms as breathing problem ,kidney problem .But it is better you consult your doctor and get examined ,so you can get the right treatment at the earliest .
