  • Did you try to pop a "pimple" near that spot in the last few days?
    I tried to pop what I thought was a pimple near my lip one time, and my face swelled up bad! I didn't have insurance, so I didn't go to the Dr. but the nurse I called was really concerned because my symtoms lasted for days. She said it could be cellulitus.

    My advice to you would be to see your doctor ASAP. It could be nothing... but it could also be one of a variety of serious conditions.

  • See a doctor. Could be a skin infection, allergic reaction, or a bug bite.
