Q.

Swollen glands and pains around the top lip and nose area

What is wrong with my daughter her top lip is very swollen, she gets pains by her glands and she has a pimple like a thing just below her nose. My 13-year-old daughter is saying the pains on her lip is very bad and it causes her glands and teeth to become sore. I did have a look but there are no Abscesses in her mouth. She is also complaining that her right side of her throat by her glands has a burning stinging pain.

It is difficult to be sure about the reasons for your daughter's symptoms without being able to see her. It is possible that she has a tooth abscess or an illness such as glandular fever. Either way her symptoms are of concern and she must be seen by a doctor.
