I developed food allergies about 4 years ago, my lips swell severely and my cheeks swell also. I think it's a soy allergy, but I have seen an allergy doctor, and had the prick test but nothing showed up. Chicken seasoning is really bad for me as well. No tablets seem to work to reduce the swelling, so I just have to ride it out. It takes about 18 hours for all swelling to disappear.
