My mom has a swollen lip and had a pimple and popped it five times already. The pain is going down to her jaw, and can't sleep. Should she see doctor?

In brief: Yes

This may be the beginning of a skin infection, a cellulitis, that may need antibiotics for treatment, and could become more serious and systemic without adequate treatment.
