fat upper lip for no reason

For the past 2 days, i have woken up with a zit above my upper lip and my upper lip has been fat right in the middle. I popped the pimple, and alot came out. I took an anti-inflammatory yesterday which seemed to help a bit, and i put ice on it last night, but this morning its only seemed to get worse. Is there and home remedies that would help, as i have to go to the beach with some friends in a few hours and i'd rather not go looking like a duck. HELP ASAP

thanks :)

Don't pop pimples. This spreads bacteria under the skin leading to more spots, delayed healing time, secondary infection and even scarring.
Ice does not have any anti-acne properties and there is a lack of medical evidence that home remedies are beneficial,
Buy an over the counter product such as ByeByeBlemish (which contains salicylic acid and zinc) or Freederm (contains nicotinamide).
