piriton you need pal.

but piriton just helps the itch and does not take away the swelling... the body will need to heal itself or go to the doctors and they will give you steroids.

i have had a nightmare in the last month both my kids have had this my sons eye swelled up we ws up the hospital all week... then my little girl got it the next week and her lips also swelled up like balloons it was awful and another week up the hospital having tests done.

Do you have any spots/ rash ?

it might be the tooth that is swelling up the lips m8 i had a tooth ache once and it made my bottom teeth hurt and my dentist told me it was my top tooth that was doing it i was shocked i thought the bottom one was the problem.

If it is a bad reaction as in lips are so swollen they are hard then seek medical advice asap mate, im training now so not talking crad :)

(start work soon at Royal London Hospital in A+E as well)

If you have not done so already, take a antihistamine. Piriton will help, although quite possibley not enough...certainly wont be a quick fix.
You might need to have a localised sterioid injection mate. I wouldnt think it is the tablets in all honestly although people have been known to develop reactions to things overnight so to speak..!

Need a bit more info on ur current health, any illnesses, know allergies etc before I can say anything else mate. (pm if you want)
