Customer Question

I woke up in the night and it felt like I had a slight swollen bot***** *****p on my left side. I thought nothing of it and went back to sleep. This morning I awoke and the swelling has spread. I have a large swollen lower cheek and upper lip also, all on the left side. No pain.

Welcome to Just Answer.
Is there any other symptom, pain or itching?
How is the temperature?
Did you have any injury? any previous disease?
Thank you.
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

It feels warm, warmer than my right side, but not hot. There is no pain or itching. I don't have any previous injury. I'm not sure what you mean by previous disease.

Expert:  Dr. Saha replied 4 years ago.
Thank you for the information,
Swelling of the lip is often due to an allergy.
There can be an inflammation or infection too which can cause raised temperature.
Injury, bite can also cause it but you do not remember any such.
I would advise to get it checked by doctor.
You can take benadryl or zyrtec till you can see doctor.
This will help in case of an allergy.
I hope this information helps.
I will be happy to assist, if you need any clarification.
