Hi there.
Thank you for your question.
I will be helping you out with your queries.
I would appreciate it if you could attach a picture of your lip here.
You can do so by clicking on the paper clip icon by opening this page on the internet explorer on your laptop.
If that does not work out you can upload a picture on www.tinypic.com and send me the link.
Thank you.

Its swollen I told you the problem .
I don't know how to do that
Tell me what's the problem first and then we see if I can send a picture
Expert:  Dr. SH replied 2 years ago.
This sound like a local skin infection on your lip.
It is not related to the injection that you had in your lip seven years back.
Skin infections are something very common particularly on your lips.
It may have been something that touched your lips that caused the infection.
I would recommend that you use topical and oral antibiotics for this to help cure it.
Oral antibiotics like Augmentin 625 mg three times daily for five days along with topical antibiotic creams such as polymyxin may help.
Let me know if you have more questions.

Thank you for the additional information and the link that you sent me.
I am sorry that you had to go through a lot posting this picture.
Your upper lip is very much swollen and it does seem like a skin infection due to which the lip is swollen.
I think that you will require topical and systemic antibiotics like I mentioned above.
If your swelling does not settle I would strongly recommend that you should visit a dermatologist (skin doctor) for further evaluation.
I am pretty sure there is an infection in the upper lip.
Let me know if you have more questions.
