Family Practitioner Questions Face swelling

What could be the possible cause for the swelling in my face?

I have just suddenly had severe swelling all over my face. I can't understand if it is due to an insect bite or some kind of an allergy. What could be the possible reason behind this?

Could be an allergy. Can you link the swelling to any exposure during your daily activities?
Allergies, but many heart disease could do also.
You could have an allergic reaction to an insect bite, something you ate or an airborne allergen (i.e. pollen, particles in smoke). Swelling in the face may also be due to water retention due to too much salt in your diet or from heart problems.
Allergic or hypersensitivity reaction, or angio edema
