    Swollen Lip, Swollen Eyelid, and/or Rash on Arms and Body - Just moved to Hawaii

    Aloha! I moved to Hawaii in early September - and randomly since I have been here I have had either a Swollen upper lip, or a swollen eyelid, and/or a rash on my arms or body. I moved from Maryland and have never had an allergic reaction like this.


    • The swollen lip feels like it is burning at first, then puffs up.

    • The eyelid started feeling itchy, then ballooned up - the itchiness stopped, but was swollen for less than 48 hours.

    • The rash on my arms and body just start as an itchy spot than rapidly spread.


    It usually starts when walking outside, at night- not always at the same areas. Benadryl helps - and most of the rashes go away by morning. I have not had the swollen eyelid and lip at the same time.


    Any idea what this could be from? Thank you!!
