Hives and Angioedema (cont.)
IN THIS ARTICLE
When to Seek Medical Care
Contact your health-care provider if you have hives or angioedema. After hearing your symptoms, he or she may want to see you for an office visit.
If you are having any of these symptoms along with hives or angioedema, you may be having an anaphylactic reaction. Go immediately to a hospital emergency department.
Other reasons to go to the emergency department:
Do not drive yourself; if no one is available to take you right away, call 911 for emergency transport. While waiting for the ambulance to arrive, begin self-treatment.
