My dad is in horrible health he has had a tramatic change over the past month. His body is completly swollen, he looks as red as a cherry, and its not from his blood pressure he is on medication and his blood pressure is down, he is walking like a 80 yr old man, he has heart problems, now he is broken out and blisters, and is sweating constantly, he wakes up in the middle of the night crying because he is in so much pain. He is only in his 40\\\'s. He needs help and he needs a different doctor I need some advice where to go for him.

Thanks for using this forum...

It seems your dad has hypertension with heart ailments..The presence of blisters and redness over the body can be due to diabetes asoociated or some allergy..You should meet a general practitioner or a md medicine doctor to show your father...
