Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Swollen lips and the appearance of boils-like masses in the nasal cavity may or may not be interconnected. Although often not dangerous, but conditions like this, if it occurs in children, of course it can be very disturbing, especially when children eat, breathe, and other activities.
Swollen lips can be caused by many factors, for example being bitten by insects, contact dermatitis, allergies, injuries, infections, benign or malignant tumors, and so on. Meanwhile, a mass resembling boils in the nasal cavity can be caused by rhinitis, nasal polyps, corpus alienum, enlarged conchae, also benign or other malignant tumors.
Handling of complaints on the lips and nasal cavity can be done differently, can be with the administration of drugs, surgery, and so on. Not always your complaint is right to be treated with antibiotics, like Clindamycin. Antibiotics are only appropriate if a complaint appears related to a bacterial infection. If not, of course the handling is different.
Our advice, check your child directly to the doctor or pediatrician. With direct observation, doctors are often able to identify the best management, including conducting investigations when needed, for example allergic tests, rhinoscopy, biopsy, and so on.
At this time, what you should do:
Encourage children not to pry excessive nose, let alone insert any object into it
Ask your child to drink more, eat healthy foods
Avoid children from contact with substances that are vulnerable to make the nose and lips areas allergic to irritation, for example spicy and oily foods, toothpaste or mouthwash that contains irritative ingredients
Raise your child's head when sleeping, for example with more pillows supported, so that the swelling on his lips decreases
Do not carelessly give drugs to children, especially antibiotics or other drugs that do not belong to the group of over-the-counter drugs, without a prescription directly from a doctor
Hope this helps ...
