Normal or overfilled: Allergic reactions to ha fillers are rare. It's more likely you are temporarily swollen just from being poked. Ice and ibuprofen are your best treatment for the first 2 to 3 days after fillers. If the swelling persists after 3 days then you might be overfilled and you can discuss with your injector about reversal

Wait a few days...: Some swelling after lip injection is very common. How much depends on many things, including injection technique, how much filler, which filler, your body, etc. If the filler still feels hard after the swelling clears, you may have been injected with a thicker filler, which won't give as nice a result. I personally like Restylane (dermal fillers) Silk for the lips, very smooth and natural looking, less swelling

If your swelling doesn't improve with ice/motrin and a few days, see your MD. They can inject hyaluronidase to dissolve the filler if you don't like it.

Very common: Its common the have swelling of the lips after injections. I found restyle silk gives more swelling that restylane (dermal fillers) but in any even the swelling resolves in a day or so. Just as the others said motrin , advil, are good simple measures. If its really bothersome a shore dose of steroids but thats rarely needed. Also I seep perlane on your med list prelude in the lip will give a firm often lumpy feel

Lanolin/cocoa butter: Using lanolin or cocoa butter will help with dry nipples. If your baby is only latching onto the nipple, break the seal by putting your finger in their mouth and relatch them on with more breast tissue in their mouth. It helps quite a bit!

Cooking oil: While there are lots of remedies, the one that worked the best for me was cooking oil. It is edible and easily absorbed into the skin. I would apply a small dab on the nipples after nursing. Worked really well.

Will nasonex (mometasone) help remove my "allergic shiners" (circles under eyes)?

Possibly: Allergic shiners are the result of passive congestion of a venous plexus because of nasal congestion. Allergic shiners, while typical in allergy, are not always caused by allergy. If one is allergic then use of nasal steroid spray may be helpful to reduce them.
