What can cause facial swelling?
Have you ever used a new type of skin care product or detergent, only to have your skin become red and irritated? If so, you may have experienced contact dermatitis. This condition occurs when chemicals you come into contact with cause a reaction.

Many substances can cause such reactions, including soaps, cosmetics, fragrances, jewelry and plants.
