    Thanks. I actually started a regimen of antibiotic ointment, and the situation seems to be resolving itself. Able to play a couple hours today without pain, and was able to get a decent buzz from the get go. I've been on medication (blood pressure) for about eight years, and never had a problem.

    As you likely know, the REAL doctor is the PhD, herr doktor. The physician is der Artz, Richtig?

    Vell, vee schpell it a bit differently: Arzt

    You see, in tschermann der "T" ist built in to zee "Z" so vee never need der "T" bevor ein "Z".

    No offense BigDub, but it looks like I got my own personal German editor par excellence!

    Update….I did go to my physician. He prescribed a topical ointment which eliminated the swelling problem. However, the cause remained unknown…so I started to think about diet. Since moving from Iowa to Louisiana, I started indulging REGULARLY in one of my culinary passions….hot boiled crawfish. I stopped eating boiled crawfish/shrimp, or anything else prepared with the highly spiced Louisiana "Crab boil…" Voile! Not a hint of swelling….lips normal. Just to be sure that this was the cause, I ate some more about a month later. Sure as the sun comes up, the next day my lips were swollen and sore. Resumed my abstention from "crab boil" prepared seafood, and the problem never returned.

    Thanks for the update. I'm glad this is no longer an issue.
