Hives, Swollen Fingers and Joint Pain

Hi everyone,
I recently broke out in itchy hives, which is usual when I have an allergic reaction.
This time I have swollen and painful fingers, also the back of my knees are sore and in pain.

I'm not sure what the allergen in question was, I went to the park so maybe it was an allergic reaction to an insect bite? Antihistamines haven't helped.
Has anyone else had these symptoms?

Hello

Gosh - not a nice experience and more annoying to not be able to pin down exactly where the reaction came from. It is important to keep an eye on these type of symptoms and if you find they are getting worse in the next few days OR not improving we would suggest the easiest thing to do at this time would be if you are able to visit a pharmacist who would be able to best advise.

you should seek the doctor I guess, if it, not insects bite then maybe it is another things.
