I suddenly this afternoon had lips swell up and mouth(inside) hurts so much, cannot even brush teeth. Also have had bad sore throat for 2 days. I have diabetes, heart problems and assorted other more minor things. What should I do? YYYY@YYYY I
You have symptoms of swelling on the lips which seems to be due to an allergic reaction and could be angioedema. Need not to worry. I would suggest you apply benzyl benzoate lotion in 25% quantity and apply cold compresses to lips and tongue. Visit dermatologist once and get the complete examination done and take the proper course of antibiotics. Avoid repeated touching or pricking of lips.
Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
