facial itching then swelling

My husband has been having the left side of his cheek not far from his mouth itching like crazy for a day or two and then the itch stops and that side of his face is swollen for 2-3 days. Then it leaves and doesn't come back for several weeks. He was told to get rid of his feather pillow which we did but it didn't change anything. It is never any place else except the left cheek. Any ideas?

Re: facial itching then swelling

Actually it sounds like a food allergy...esp if it's not his lips swelling. Lips would indicate oral allergy syndrome.
