Swelling is very common and happens for many different reasons, but you can usually treat it successfully at home. If you have localized swelling due to an injury or medical procedure, treatments like rest and ice usually do the job. For chronic fluid retention (edema) due to pregnancy, medication side effects, congestive heart failure, vascular disease, or other causes, things like light exercise and dietary changes often help. So, unless you have emergency swelling (such as due to an allergic reaction) that needs immediate medical attention, read on for some helpful advice on reducing swelling on your own.
