I went to a doctor today and was told I had an abscess in my lip.

He mad a cut under my lip and drained out the puss.

It has been 3 hours since and with ice I am already feeling a relief of pressure and swelling.

I recommend anyone that thinks they have unusual swelling go to a doctor before they wait too long for "the swelling to come down".
