Right, so I got sunburnt at a PPK picnic this weekend. My lips have been hurting ever since. Yesterday I thought I was getting a cold sore, so I bought some cold sore cream.
This morning I woke up with a crazy swollen lip.
It looks more like an allergic reaction. Has anyone else experienced something similar?
It hurts.

sounds like your lips are sunburned! keep em moisturized. if it is from an allergic reaction take an allergy pill like benadryl

I have no advice but I was hoping for a picture when I opened the thread.
Silly PPK, making my brain all wacky for gross pictures.
I hope you feel better soon!!

I had a problem a few weeks ago, but in my eyes. My lips' bad reactions usually wind up feeling and looking like a bad chemical peel without the swelling.

Take some Benadryl (antihistamine) and if it's a reaction it should at least help it a little. It may have just been the irritation of a sunburn not getting along with the medicine.

That sucks, I hope it gets better soon. I am sad for your lip but jealous that you get a PPK picnic.

I sometimes get this when my lips get cracked, like they have been lately because it's so cold and windy. My lip will get really swollen and hard in the one spot where it's cracked, and it almost looks like there's a marble in there or something. I just try to keep them moisturised, and don't poke at it. It usually fixes itself up.
