About three weeks ago I had a sharp pain in my upper left lip and a hard knot came up and my lip started swelling until it was twice the size. With in 24 hours it was gone and you would have never known. With in a week it happened again but this time on the bottom. I got really sharp pains and the whole bottom lip swelled to twice it size. Then last night it happen again but this time on the upper right lip and was gone within less the twelve hours. I went to urgent care and they didn't know but said maybe it was herpes and gave me Valtrex. I read up on it and I have NEVER had a cold sore to appear and it never last more then 1 day..... any ideas.... could I be allergic so something and it just takes a few hours to appear? It started on the left then to the bottom and then to the right. It has made a complete round trip.
