Allergic reaction? Mostly around the lip line. Bumps, itchy, swelling and red. I think its my girlfriends chapstick.

Possibly: Symptoms you describe may be consistant with an allergic reaction. I recommend discontinuing use of the chapstick. If it is an allergy, symptoms should resolve in a few days at the latest. If it persists, i recommend having the rash evaluated by your doctor. Remember, not all reactions are allergic reactions. Have it checked out to be sure. ...Read more

The allergic reaction causes the ...Read more

I have tiny bumps on lip line. How do I tell if this is herpes or an allergic reaction?

I have tiny bumps on lip line. How do I tell if this is herpes or an allergic reaction?

I have very tiny, seemingly pus filled bumps on my lips. They're in various spots & not painful but bit tingly and itchy. Allergic reaction? Herpes?

I have very tiny, seemingly pus filled bumps on my lips. They're in various spots & not painful but bit tingly and itchy.  Allergic reaction? Herpes?

See doctor: They do not appear to be just herpes which usually involves part of the skin surface as well although it may be from another type of viral infection. If the problem fails to resolve within a week or getting worse, see your doctor. ...Read more

Allergic reaction 1 week ago where r side of lip swelled. Now swelling mostly gone but pulsating bump under lip there? Have scheduled allergy test.

Lip swelling: A pulsating bump in the lip does not sound like a residual from an allergic reaction. If you can get into seeing your doctor first before seeing the alllergist, they may look at it and see what it is. ...Read more

I had an allergic reaction to bactrim on 1/11/14 (swollen lips and rashes on abdomen & back arm). I was given doxycycline hyclate. Rash became bumps?

I had an allergic reaction to bactrim on 1/11/14 (swollen lips and rashes on abdomen & back arm). I was given doxycycline hyclate. Rash became bumps?

Bactrim: If you meant that the rash was progressing without interruption despite switching to doxycycline, i would venture that the rash is just from the progression of the sulfa rash since the process will likely last for a week or two. Beware of sunlight exposure from doxycyline which may give a nasty sunburn for some people. ...Read more
