Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com. I am dr. Princess Claudya will help answer your questions.


Swelling of the lips can be caused by the following conditions:

Inflammation of the lips due to biting or bumping
Allergic reactions (angioedema), eg food allergies, drug allergies
Inflammation of the skin due to contact with an allergen on the skin of the lips
Bacterial or viral infection
Insect bites
Tumors on the lips

To ascertain the cause, you should first check with a general practitioner for immediate examination. If necessary, the doctor will carry out supporting examinations such as blood tests, or refer to certain specialists according to suspected disease for further tracking.


Meanwhile, what you can do is:

Cold compress the swollen lips
Avoid chewing too quickly to avoid the risk of lip bites
Enough water intake is 2 liters per day
Adequate intake of nutritious foods, especially fruits and foods that contain lots of protein as long as they don't cause allergies to you, in order to boost your immune system
Avoid massaging / squeezing the swollen area
Avoid smoking
If you feel pain, you can take over the counter drugs such as paracetamol to relieve it

That's all the explanation from me, hopefully it helps and is useful :)

Regards,
