My dad is having places come up on his body like a allergic reaction that swells its on his top lip at the moment and on his side?

Swelling of the lips: typically denotes angioedema, which is a hypersensitivity reaction that can be life threatening should it progress to the entire airway/throat. Most of the time it will stop once the reactant in question is out of his system, typically 2-4 days after the last ingestion or exposure. I would stop whatever it is he suspected was the cause and take some benadryl (diphenhydramine) over the counter. ...Read more
