Re: why does lip swell all the time

keep a food/drink journal to see if it happens with your diet. Do you use a certain lip gloss/chapstick periodically? I don't know what ingredient i have a reaction to, but some make my lips swell and itch

Re: why does lip swell all the time

Most likely it is caused by dye in lipstick or other chemicals.

Go without lipstick or glosses, etc. for a period of time (few weeks) and see if they are better or still swelling.

Some foods could be the cause. Keep track of your diet and see what you are eating about every 10 days that might be the cause.
