What can I do to decrease swelling in my lower lip caused by puncturing a mucocele last evening?

Ice

Head-mouth-lips
if it's not infected you could put ice on it. If it is infected you would need to see a doctor for an antibiotic prescription. Mucoceles have a tendency to recur.

Dr. Daniel Quon answered:

can i go to the er to have a mucocele removed from my lower lip?

You could

Head-mouth-lips
You could go to an ER for the removal of a mucocele from the lower lip, but depending on the docs covering the ER, they may or may not remove it. They will likely refer you to or suggest you see an oral surgeon or ENT for the procedure. The procedure is most commonly performed under local anesthesia in the office environment.

Perhaps

This happens sometimes. It is best to call the surgeon who performed the procedure to advise him\her of what you feel, get some advice, and when he\she wants to see you for a follow up visit.

I have a bump inside my lower right lip. I've heard that it can be a mucocele but mine is colored clear is it still a mucocele?

Is? can be.

I can't tell you for sure what it is without actually seeing it, but many mucoceles can have a clear liquid. If you still have it or it reoccurs you should have a dentist check it out. There are other possible lesions that might appear similar and even some mucoceles need treatment other than just "popping" it.

Any remedy ?for mucocele, I had one inside lower lip went away, now another one in roof of my mouth.are they consider serious ?

How do you know

Teeth_brushing
It is a mucocele? In 25 years of practice I have never seen one on the roof of the mouth. I would See a dentist to make a professional diagnosis. If you have already consulted a dentist, it would be best to ask him about your status. If you disagree or are unsure, you can always get a second opinion from another dentist or an oral surgeon. That is another reason why our country is great!
