I have been having big rashes every night and they disappear in the morning. Sometimes, I wake up with a swollen lip, I went to the hospital and they gave me an allergy injection and some drugs Promethazine and Prednisolone tablets. They stopped and I stopped taking the drugs. Now they are back. I am a female, age 21 years.
