Upper lip swelling constanstly for over a 2 year period

Patient

Q: My upper lip has been swelling for the past 3 years. ive been taking alergy tablets which reduce it slightly but not fully to how it was. From the hospital ive had a patch test done which came back negative. Then i had a biopsy of the upper lip which also was negitive, they still gave me steriod injections which stopped the swelling and my lip went back to normal but it started again 3 months later. So they gave me another cource of steriod but these never helped me. im stuck as what to do as know one seems to know what it could be.

Symptoms:  Sweeling normaly when i wake up in the morning
