The lip swelling/numbness and face flushing/rash seems to be a give-away, especially immediately after eating it. Of course, you could be responding to any other ingredient in the dish, as well. Take antihistamine now, as it could get worse. (your reaction in the future could worsen as well!). ...Read more

They also look like blisters before since they have fluid inside them. Aphthous ulcers can recur in the same spots but do not develop a blister. An Rx for Kenalog in Orabase may help for pain. ...Read more

If not see your md/behavioral psychologist. ...Read more
