Bump on a lip after eating spicy noodles. It doesn’t hurt but still, its appearance bothers me. Am I allergic to spicy food?
Hello, I have had this little bump on my lip for almost 2 weeks now. I am unsure of where it would have come from. It doesn't bother me, and as far as I remember I was eating spicy noodles and it showed later that night. I want to know what this could be? It doesn’t itch or burn but its appearance bothers me. Could it be anything dangerous? Is it normal or should I be worried? Am I allergic to spicy food?
@aci Hello, it can’t be a food allergy. Food allergies can cause lip swelling, but usually with itchy lips, mouth, throat, and other allergy symptoms. If the swelling occurred within 4 hr of eating spicy food, it could be a food allergy to the protein in the food. If swelling occurred over 4 hours after eating food then it wasn't an allergy to that food. Consult a doctor. Thank You!
