In brief: Avoid triggers, meds

Angioedema can be caused by an allergy to foods & medicines and prevention means avoiding the offending trigger. Angioedema can also be caused by an underlying condition & treatment of that condition decreases angioedema attacks.
Angioedema can also be hereditary but sometimes no cause is found. In those cases, medications & blood products can prevent or decrease attacks.

In brief: Angioedema

Scary symptoms, but many causes.
It is important to seek an allergist to evaluate possible triggers. There are a few very rare conditions, but most are benign and can easily be treated with simple and safe medications. Lots depends on how long you have had this, if you can pinpoint triggers, if anything has changed in your life (meds, illnesses). See an allergist.
