Lip Swelling
tmerab1101 posted:
Hello. I am having almost the same problem. I'm a 20 year old female and occasionally, when I am loving on my cats, my lip will swell. I am aware that mine is probably an allergic reaction, but it's strange. It doesn't happen every time I come in contact with my cats. Otherwise it would be every day. It will start as a tingling in one area of my lip. Over the next few minutes my lip will burn and sting. Then, it continues to swell and the swollen area gets hard. The stinging will continue for the duration of the swelling. Whenever pressure is applies, my lip swells even more. Benadryl isn't working. Any advice?
