In brief: Swollen Lips

Consider going to an er if the swelling is persisting since you might need an Epinephrine shot and high dose antihistamines.

In brief: Medication

Antihistamines can be very helpful.
Benadryl (diphenhydramine) works well but can cause sleepiness. Other antihistamines like zyrtec, Allegra and Claritin also work well. In severe cases a doctor can prescribe oral steroids or an injection.
