Hands swelling for 18 hours – what should I do?

For over 30 hours I have been dealing with swelling in both hands. It is mostly localized to random parts of different fingers and is accompanies by tingling throughout the hand. Benadryl has been working as a temporary relief but it keeps coming back. What should I do?

Hi..
it seems to be a soft tissue inflammation ,may be due to some blood derangements or infection.
only benadryl wont work.take anti inflammatory tablets and apply local gel,ice packing.
it this doesnt work, consult a nearby doctor and get xrays and blood investigations like cbc, uric acid done.
keep the hands elevated.
thanks
