Had bronchoscopy with washing. Woke up from sedation,with left, side of lower lip swollen blister type thing. Is this normal? Should I pop it?

Don't pop it: This probably means that something was resting on your lip during the procedure and you were unaware because you were asleep. Most likely it was a mouth guard that is typically used - to make sure you don't bite down on the scope. If you can avoid it, I wouldn't pop it. This may open it up and risk infection. ...Read more

Lower lip is swollen, small red bump under the lip, is it a cold sore? I can feel the bump thro my lip. Not itchy, no feaver, lip feels numb

Lower lip is swollen, small red bump under the lip, is it a cold sore? I can feel the bump thro my lip. Not itchy, no feaver, lip feels numb

Can't be 100% sure: But what you're describing sounds a lot like the early signs of a cold sore. These are typically caused by a strain of the herpes virus that about 80% of people carry in their system. People usually get them when they are run down, or stressed (or have a "cold"). If you want to be pro-active, you can ask your doctor for a prescription for an anti-viral medication like "valacyclovir" which can help. ...Read more

My left lower outside vaginal lip is swollen and has been that way for about two months. Sex has not been a contributing factor. It does not hurt.

My left lower outside vaginal lip is swollen and has been that way for about two months. Sex has not been a contributing factor. It does not hurt.

Bartholins Cyst: The most common cause for a painless swelling in the lower aspect of the outer labia on one side is a Bartholin's Cyst. The Bartholin's glands secrete fluid thru the Bartholin's Duct that helps lubricate the vagina during intercourse. The duct can become blocked leading to a soft painless swelling in the location you describe. A much less likely cause is a hernia. SEE: http://bit.ly/1vBT7T3 ...Read more

See an MD: And I suggest either an allergist or an internist, in a primary care or consultative setting. You wont get what you are looking for at an urgent care center or an ER. Those places are for specific urgent and emergency concerns. You need a primary care doc to take the lead on this one. There are some important things to consider here, mainly sleep disordered breathing and angioedema. Call your doc. ...Read more
