    Swelling top lip when tablets are taken

    I've had this problem for a while and been to multiple doctors about it. They literally just say "I don't know" and send me home assuming it's a virus or post-virus symptom. Whenever I take tablets for a cold or hay fever (I get sinusitis often), my top lip begins to swell up within an hour or so. It can vary, but is usually just on one side and feels like a hard lump or sometimes even a stone in my lip. Depending on the dosage of medicine, it can be worse, for example sometimes....

    2 months yellow phlegm

    Hi there, I have seen quite a number of doctor and there is no result so far. Some MD believes it is due to allergy, some ENT believes it is due to my nose leaking down the airway, causing throat infection but my nose is perfectly fine. My mouth is dirty every morning comes with yellow/brown saliva + phlegm. The phlegm is not thick and it can be white or clear yellow. It happens everyday after I woke up and my throat has been swollen for quite some time. I did X-Ray and it seems fine too. Ate all....

    Syphilis Treatment Causing itching?

    I got a penicillin shot for treatment of syphilis two days ago. A few hours after the shot I broke out in hives, had chills, and a low grade fever. I took Benadryl and Tylenol and went to sleep, when I woke up I felt back to normal. However I slowly developed an itch and it's gotten worse but there's no physical sign of any problem with me like a rash or bumps on my skin or even redness, taking Benadryl does not stop the itch. Is this residual effects from my slight allergy to penicillin....

    Lips swell after eating some foods like carrots and canteloupe...allergic?

    Hello, I am nineteen years old and for most of my teenage years, I have noticed that my lips swell and develop small red bumps when I eat certain foods. This happens with carrots, watermelon, canteloupe, honeydew, bananas, and sometimes strange foods like mushrooms. I try to avoid eating these foods as much as possible but I love most of them, so I fall victim to it quite often. The red bumps appear within minutes and sometimes my throat feels itchy (not tight). Is there a common factor within all....
