Do I use straw if lip swelling?

Sounds good to me

Lip_swelling
Using a straw sounds like a good idea to me. I think you'd want to minimize "stress" to the lip and using a straw might help.

Can smoking meth cause lip swelling ?

Pipe burn

Ankle_sprain
it is more likely that the lip swelling is a heat burn from the smoking apparatus (pipe, etc) than from an allergic reaction. That said, your drugs could be cut with virtually anything, and are likely to harm you. Please get help. Stopping the problem would be more helpful than solving the lip swelling.

How can I make lip swelling go down?

Why is it swollen?

Lip_swelling
The question is why or what is causing you swollen lip. If you hit it or got thumped in the mouth. Is there a growth in or on your lip? You can ice a lip and see if the swelling goes down. If that doesn't work...go see a doctor and get it looked at or biopsied.

It depends

On the cause. If you had surgery, it may only take a few days, but if it is due to a disease or medication reaction it can take longer. It is best to ask the doctor who is familiar with your situation.
