Part of my upper lip is swollen. Not quite half of the lip is swollen. I thought it was a pimple but no head is showing and it has continued to swell. Any suggestions?

Hello Anon

Thank you for writing.

This sounds like an allergic reaction.

Did you take ibuprofen recently? Advil can cause swelling in the upper lip. It could also be due to lipstick allergy or food allergy. Think back to what you have consumed.
Generally, this reaction should leave within a few days. If it doesn't ,consult your doctor.
