Tight, swollen lips after applying lip balm, liquid secretion. How to get relief?

Hi, yesterday I applied a lip balm I purchased yesterday. I few hours later my lips felt slightly tender and a bit swollen. Today, when I woke up, the edges of my lips began to feel tight and I think they are secreting a liquid. I have had this happen to me, and I thought this was an allergic reaction , but this happened quite fast so I m not sure what I should do this time around.

Welcome to heathcare Magic!
You have hypersensitivity reaction. You should make sure that you have access to a healthcare facility all the while because at times swelling can increase fast to choke the patient.
You should take tablet Levocetirizine 5mg stat and tablet Wysolone-(prednisolone) 60mg stat and both of them once a day at 8am and Rantac 150 mg twice a day empty stomach to be started stat and continue for next 5days in supervision of your physician.
Wish you a great health!
