Check and see if you are allergic to salicylates and high amine foods. Look into the Feingold diet. For example the person who got swelling on her lip when using herbal lipstick was probably caused by salicylates (which is high in herbal products). You want to see an experienced and open minded Immunologist/Allergist and get alot of blood tests as well (i.e. CBC, CH50, C4 complement, ESR, SPEP, ANA and a RAST).
