Swollen left side of face hives on face,neck and chest and itching had now for 5 days swelling gone down but hives and itching still here
You have an allergic reaction to something, maybe seafood you ate?
As long as the area of your lips, tongue, and neck is not swollen you are not in danger from this now.
See a pharmacist and ask for a strong anti-histamine. There are types which do not cause drowsiness, but heed any warnings about not driving or operating machinery.
If there is no prompt improvement see a doctor as there may be some other cause at work.
It would be useful to have a doctor investigate this with a test kit to find out the cause, as in future you should be careful of anything which causes swelling on the face and neck like that.
If you ever do get allergic swelling in that area again, especially the lips and mouth, go to emergency immediately.
