Hello, I have a swollen bottom lip on the left side and I was wondering where it came from yesterday I didn t have it or at least notice it but now I do and it hurts when touched and it was bleeding as if I had chapped lips and I can see the skin folds on the middle of my lip. It also stings when i like that side of my lip do you know what this is or could be?

Thanks for writing to us.
A swollen bottom lip with pain is most likely to be related to a local allergy. Try to avoid any hot and spicy food. You can apply 1% hydrocortisone ointment in the area for symptomatic relief. It is likely to subside in 4-5 days.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
