Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Hi! I am Dr Saleem. Welcome to JA.
Thank you for the question. I will be answering your query shortly.
I understand your concern.
The swelling may initially increase. Are the lips swollen too?
Are there any bleeding problems?
How much piriton is she supposed to take?
Alright. she can take Tablet Piriton 4 mg every 6-8 hours. The swelling can increase initially but will eventually go down with anti-histamine.
You will need to observe for development of rash inside the mouth and around genitalia. If that happens then please see a doctor again. It may take 3-5 days to get better significantly. It should ideally not keep on getting worse after a couple of days. If it does then you'll have to see a doctor again.
You're most welcome. Hope she gets better soon.
