How to Treat Angioedema


Talk with your doctor about the best treatment plan for you. Minor episodes of angioedema may need no treatment, but it is important to make sure the swelling does not spread to the airway, which can be life-threatening. Treatment options include the following:

  • Medications-Certain medications (eg, antihistamines, epinephrine, corticosteroids, and pain medications) may help ease symptoms of angioedema.
  • Tracheostomy -If your airway is affected, your doctor may place a tube in your throat to keep your airway open.
