Swollen lips: responded to benadryl, (diphenhydramine) might have been a reaction to something you ate or applied to your lips, hopefully your tongue wasn't swollen too, and you didn't have difficult breathing, just observe, moisturize your lips, keep yourself hydrated, if the swelling recurs, please see your doctor,
