    Help! Swollen bottom lip in 8 year old boy

    I need help, any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I have an 8 year old son that got a swollen bottom lip about 5 months ago. He has no pain and no other symptoms. His lip is constantly swollen and nothing helps it. He has been to an allergist and did all the allergy testing and everything came back negative. He has had blood test down to check for any auto immune diseases and all blood work came back normal. He has taken prednisone Twice, the liquid and pills and neither worked. We have done cream of triamcinolone acetonide which did reduce the swelling a little bit but didn't last. I have noticed that his lips are bigger in the morning when he first wakes up. He has been to 3 specialist and NO ONE has a clue of what is causing his swelling. Because its not giving him any pain no one seems to care. The next step is a lip biopsy. Has anyone at all ever had or seen this issue? Do you have any suggestions of what it might be? I feel helpless as a mother because he is teased so much due to his bottom lip and I don't know why it is swollen.
