No: but it sounds like angioedema. Try antihistamine up to 4 doses per day to see if this helps. If you experience massive tongue or any throat swelling, rush to the ER. The cause for angioedema is often unknown. ...Read more

Itchy red, alligator like feeling, swollen rash on cheeks, neck & chest. Swollen eyelids. Dr. Said allergic reaction, steroid medication is not helpin?

Up the treatment: I see in your medication list that you are taking Diphenhydramine (Benadryl) an h1 antihistamine, and were prescribed a steroid cream.
