In brief: Maybe

Lip swelling is an unusual physical exam finding, and the causes are varied.
The most important additional questions to ask include: any problems breathing, any tickle sensation in the throat, any rash, and new medications, are you on an ace-inhibitor medication like lisinopril, do you have hives? Any insect bites? If you have problems breathing you need to be evaluated immediately and call 911.
