Abscess and swollen lip

Hello everyone my name is India and I'm new to healthboards. I am having a weird experience. Friday morning I noticed what I thought was a boil forming above my lip on the right side. I don't usually touch them so it wasn't a big deal. Later that night I noticed when I laughed, spoke or any streching movements with my lips hurt. I went to the mirror and saw that my pimple was huge, hard and painful to the touch. Assumed the best thing to do is drain it. So I got a needle burned the end and pop the "pimple". About an hour later the right side of my lip was swollen and sore. The boil (which I figured what it was after that) is above my lip and still painful. Is this normal I've never had an area around a boil to swell before? Or could this be 2 separate issue? Thanks in advance
