Swelling on one side of the lip extending to the cheek and the entire face with warmness. Cause?

Good morning, I am a female, 30 yrs old and am not on any medication. Last night I started to have swelling on the right side of my lip then it gradually went to my right cheek . I took 2 benedryl and put an ice pack on it which seemed to help. However this morning when I woke up, the whole right side of my face is swollen an slightly warmer than the other side. What could this be?

It seems that you might have some insect bite while sleeping giving rise to allergic swelling on your lip.
Take antihistamine like Cetrizine or Levo-cetrizine.
Prophelacically take one antibiotic medicine after consulting your doctor to prevent infection.
Continue ice pack.
Ok and take care.
