We recently added angioedema information to our online database of articles. And we will continue to add articles on relevant information. We feel it is important for patients to be able to know the basic facts as they consider their treatment options and the physicians available in their area.

Doctor Finders publishes articles on Angioedema. The searchable,online directory of doctors not only provides listings of doctors and specialists throughout the country, but they now offer extensive treatment and condition information in their online database of articles.
One of the most recent additions to Doctor Finder's online database of articles are articles on Angioedema.
Angioedema is an allergic skin disease characterized by patches of swelling on the skin and its subcutaneous layers. It also involves mucous membranes and sometimes involves the viscera. Swelling associated with the condition is usually rapid. It is often similar to urticaria (which is commonly referred to as hives), but urticaria is exclusive to the upper dermis and angioedema is not.
Some additional facts regarding angioedema included in the online database of articles are:
1. Rapid swelling related to angioedema can result in airway obstruction or suffocation which can result in an emergency situation.
2. For allergen triggered angioedema that results in an emergency situation epinephrine can be used to open the airways.
3. Epinephrine is not effective against cases of hereditary angioedema.
4. Swelling can take place within the space of a few minutes or up to several hours.
5. Swelling is most often seen in the facial area (particularly around the mouth), the hands, the feet, etc.
