Hi, I have had the swelling on the back of hand not palm for 3 days now, and it itches occasionally?

Hand swelling: Hand swelling not due to injury or an insect bite and with associated itching suggests angioedema which is an allergic reaction.

If the hand swelling persists, becomes painful or develops redness, have a physician examine you for diagnosis and treatment. Read more
