On breastfeeding, swollen lips, feels tingling and numbness under nose, chin and lip area. What's wrong?

Hi, I am a breastfeeding mother of an almost 3 mo old baby. This is my 6th child and I ve never experienced this before. My lips continued to be swollen during pregnancy, especially upper and on left side. They eventually went down after birth, but have begun swelling again, mostly upper left side. My lips are not painful, but I do feel tingling and numbness under nose, chin and lip area. Swelling only in lips. Can you tell me what is wrong? Thanks.

hi, appears to be some kind of allergic or local reaction. I suggest you see a physician . Recheck any medicine you may be taking. Start allegra or cetrizine for a few days.
