In brief: Antihistamines

If by mouth swelling you mean angioedema.
Effective over-the-counter antihistamines include fexofenadine (allegra) and loratidine (claritin, alevert) both long-acting and non-sedating and cetirzine (zyrtec) that is occasionally sedating. Feel at ease using generic versions of these medications.

Should also see your allergist for specific testing. It might discover the cause and lead to appropriate treatment

In brief: Seek medical advice

"mouth swelling" is a very vague symptom, as many different conditions can cause swelling in or of the mouth.
Therefore, to better clarify the cause, i would seek medical attention to determine the cause as treatments will vary depending on the cause. Additionally, allergic swelling of the mouth can become life-threatening if it spreads to the throat or airway.
