More Information on Oedema
Oedema also known as dropsy, is the medical term for fluid retention in the body. The build-up of fluid causes affected tissue to become swollen. The swelling can occur in one particular part of the body – for example, as the result of an injury – or it can be more general. This is usually the case with oedema that occurs as a result of certain health conditions, such as heart failure or kidney failure.

As well as swelling or puffiness of the skin, oedema can also cause:
skin discolouration (areas of skin that temporarily hold the imprint of your finger when pressed - known as pitting oedema), aching, tender limbs, stiff joints, weight gain or weight loss, raised blood pressure and pulse rate.

Types of oedema
Oedema can occur anywhere in the body but it's most common in the feet and ankles, where it is known as peripheral oedema. Other types of oedema include: cerebral oedema (affecting the brain), pulmonary oedema (affecting the lungs), macular oedema (affecting the eyes). Idiopathic oedema is a term used to describe cases where doctors are unable to find a cause.

What causes oedema?
Oedema is often a symptom of an underlying health condition. It can occur as a result of the following conditions or treatments: pregnancy, kidney disease, heart failure, chronic lung disease, thyroid disease, liver disease, malnutrition, medication, such as corticosteroids or medicine for high blood pressure (hypertension), the contraceptive pill
Oedema that occurs in the leg may be caused by: a blood clot, varicose veins, a growth or cyst. Oedema can also sometimes occur as a result of: being immobile for long periods, hot weather, exposure to high altitudes, burns to the skin. Oedema usually clears up when the underlying condition causing the fluid imbalance is diagnosed and treated.
