Hello!

Thank you for the query.

Swollen mouth without the pain and fever usually appears due to allergy. Especially if there is no tooth ache, no cough, no shortness of breath. It can be due to food allergy, dust mite allergy. You should try allergy medicine like Loratadine once a day and calcium. If any signs of airways obstruction, immediate medical attention might be necessary.

Hope this will help. Feel free to ask further questions.
Regards.
