Lip Inflammation
Answered by: Susan Eagles
Question from: Kelley
Posted on: August 16, 1999

I have a odd problem that no doctor seems to know the answer for. My upper lip gets inflamed. I have been to the dermatologist, allergist, and internist, all to no avail. This problem has been reoccurring for the past 6-9 months. When I wake up in the morning, my lip is swollen. Can you please suggest an herb(s) that can help this problem, or maybe even suggest a doctor in my area (Washington, DC metro area)?

I suggest that you consult a herbal, naturopathic or other holistic practitioner who can look for other signs of allergies or inflammation with a complete analysis of all of your body systems, your diet and environmental factors. We don’t have any recommendations for doctors, but you may get help by contacting herbal or naturopathic organizations in your area.
