My mouth is swollen, I don't have sores or anything of that

My mouth is swollen, I don't have sores or anything of that nature. The inside of my lips and under my tongue are swollen and have been for about 3 days. It is made worse when I eat. My gums are not swollen.

Is there any pain, redness?

Did you take anything new?

Did you try any measure?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
Not so much pain. Discomfort when I eat something that irritates it. I have been taking apple cider vinegar tablets... I haven't really tried anything, just avoiding things that worsen it.

Thank you for all the information,
I am sorry for your symptoms.
There can be a few possibilities.
There can be swollen salivary glands under tongue.
It can cause discomfort when there is increased secretion during eating.
Other possibilities like an allergy or mucus cysts can be there.
I would suggest to take an examination by doctor.
You can try warm, salt water to wash the mouth.
Zyrtec can be tried.
It would help if there is an allergy.
I hope this information helps.
If there’s anything else I can do, please let me know.
Wish your early recovery.
Please rate my answer excellent if you are satisfied with it.
Regards.
