Angioedema

My mom has been suffering with sudden swelling of lips for the past few months and consulted some dermatologists but the problem is not solved. Recently her tongue has swollen making it difficult to breathe. Is this Angioedema? Should we consult a general physician or dermatologist for further diagnosis?
