Hello,
Thanks for choosing health care magic for posting your query.
Unprotected oral sex exposes you to various sexually transmitted illnesses.
The throat pain that you have developed along with the swelling on the lips can be due to two reasons:
1) Infections.
2) Allergy.
There are lot many viruses and bacteria (gonorrhoea) which can cause sore throat after doing oral sex. Similarly they can cause inflamation of lips and it generally takes 2-3 weeks to heal. If it has not been better since last 17 days then probably you need to get an throat swab taken by a microbiologist who would like to culture your throat organisms. You can decide on the medication depending upon the culture reports. Until the you can start with warm water salted gargles with a few drops of betadine in it.

The other possibility is that it could be an allergy. Many times men apply balms and lubricants and other chemicals over their penis. When you come in contact with them it causes allergic swelling. Generally it doesnt last for this long. However you can still give a try to cetrizene which should reduce the swelling in either case.

Do visit an ENT specialist who would like to do a local examination of your throat and order the tests for you.

Hope I am able to answer your concerns.
