I need to know from an expert or doctor that some times my lips get swallowed ,some times upper or some times lower lip from one side only like not the whole lip but some part of it, what symptom is that? It happens mostly at lunch or dinner time. The sweling start with a bit pain at some part of the lip only its not that much painful but causes distrubance and irritation, Is that a symptom of worms in my intestine ?once a doctor told me. After few hours the swelling removes and the lips become normal but now from last night the swelling is not getting down and I am worried. This lip swelling happens very rare and there is no other symptom with that, Any medicine or any suggestion. Thanks ,,,,,, about me I am a male , 28 years of age (Irving TX)

  • I have/had the same problem and it is called angiodema, some type of allergy.Together with angiodema I got hives, red swelling skin after eating some food.I have had it for 1 year, but 6 months ago I reduce effect of allergy simply reducing some food from my menu. My results:1. Some types of detegent make this type of allergy (especially "Gain"). Your pillow covers, shirts, underwear has detergent inside, and affect on your skin, lips... 2. Sweelen hands and other parts of skin on my body I almost completely reduced by reducing meat (especially pork) from my plate. Chicken is OK, turkey not, probably those animals eat some bad things of they give them to much hormons3. Walnuts, cranbery and chocolate affect on angiodema. Eat a lot of pork,walnut cake and drink a cold cranbery jus is a perfect receipt for angiodema in my case (plus using a detegent "Gain" and "Tide"). 4. Do your own tests, but be aware that it is not momentarily effects on what you eat. Everything you had last two or three days have affects (it is in your intestinals and liver). Change pillow cover and detergent (now I am using Purex) but be aware that it is not easy to remove effects of previous (will be reduced after 5-10 washing, or simply by new clothes).5. In the mean time use Reactine pills (you can by in store) one every two days, and after reducing some food and change detergent you will be able to reduce using pills. For me it is half pill every 5 days. lepojevic.branimir@sympatico.ca

  • It's either herpes simplex1 or hives from an allergy. You might want to get food allergy tested.

Don't know if you drink diet drinks or use splenda, sweet-n-low etc..If you are lay off of these and see if that helps!
