Lip swelling: It may take a few days for it to resolve, but make sure you know what caused it, see an allergist.

Swelling: May take few more days to resolve. But what makes you think it was due to an allergic reaction? What are you allergic to? Did you come in contact with that substance? Please see you GP or an allergist to determine if you did, in fact, have an allergic reaction or if there is another cause.
