This answer was rated:

Hi I have a large swelling on my lip. It started out as what seemed to be a cold sore but now it has grown rapidly and is beginning to spread across my top lip. I have slight fever, tender and swollen glands under my chin and a headache. I have a tender red rash under my right eye and a slight throbbing sensation behind my right eye every few minutes. Thanks.

This is something for which you need to see your doctor ASAP.

If necessary you should go to the ER.

This is most lkely Cellulitis, or inflammation of the layers under the skin.

You need urgent medical attention for this.

Go to your doctor and if you cannot get an urgent appointment then go to the ER for this.

Meanwhile be careful not to rub the blister or sore which will only cause it to spread more.

Hope this shows you the way forward - wish you good health and a quick recovery.
