Lip Swelling Post Filler Treatment
Lip swelling after Botox
These are very common - and typically cause swelling, dryness, discomfort or pain and, often, a visible blister.
A detailed exam and history would be needed.
Treatment is time - as happened in your case - or the anti-viral medicine, Valtrex.
Assuming this is what you have, you should have preventive Valtrex before any future lip treatments. Best wishes.
