Swollen above upper lip

Hi all,

For a few weeks I've had a slightly raised, slightly red area above my upper lip.


I've tried vaseline, and a hydrocortisol 1% cream, haven't seemed to do much..

Any thoughts?

Thankyou!!

Unfortunately not!

Went to the GP - have been on some antihistamines.
Probably a bit worse since i took this photo.

I'm having the same problem. Did you find out what was causing it?

No! still an issue
Trying different toothpastes, avoiding aftershaves and soaps on that area... any other ideas?

Do you smoke cigarettes? I heard that could possibly cause it. I'm still trying to figure out why mines doing it too. I've recently have been getting random hives on my face too. Idk but this is getting frustrating trying to fin the cause.
