    My Swollen Lips...
    An_267756 posted:
    I have been reading some older threads regarding swollen lips. For the past several years, I also have swelling of my lips, usually just the bottom and just on one side. Initially it feels like a cold sore is coming on, or sun blister type of feeling. It seems to be random, once every 4 months or so.
    I am very conscious of my health and weight. I'm a runner, exercising 5-6 days a week. I try to not eat carbs unless they are vegetables (some fruit). I only mention this because my episodes have only occurred after eating out. That said (and I have not been to an allergist), I believe that it is some sort of additive, preservative, dye?? I don't usually use processed, packaged products and it has never happened when I cook for myself. I was wondering if anyone else has had a similar experience and more information? I read that the combination of Pepcid AC and Benadryl will help?? Thanks in advance. Deb
