Body swelling happens every time the skin, organ, or any other body part expands as a result of accumulation of water in tissue. This condition in general results in pain, irritation or inflammation. Body swelling can also happen internally. Swelling can change the surface of muscles and skins. It can be caused from tissue growth, accumulation of body fluids, or even irregular location of body tissue. Swelling increases in extreme conditions and while maintaining a particular position for long time. For example, when the weather is hot and people stand under the sun, bare feet for long time, then the ankles or feet often swells.
