Can a sinus infection cause swelling in my upper lip?
Yes, a sinus infection could cause swelling of the upper lip.A severe infection of the maxillary sinus may cause some cellulitis leading to such swelling.This may also be due to a condition called Granulomatous Cheilitis. You will need treatment with steroids and long term antibiotics like penicillin if this is diagnosed.

With the Granulomatous Cheilltis does one feel other symptoms they would feel with a sinus infection?
No, they would not.It would just be a swelling that came on and off, it is a chronic condition.Your swelling could be either. Swelling of the lip can occur from a sinus infection but usually only if the infection is quite severe.I hope my answer has helped you.
