With all due respect, EEJ, it should never be necessary to use mouthwash or ibuprofen to prevent/treat lip pain. Patience is the only necessary medicine.

If you're hurting your upper lip while playing in the left hand then you're pushing up much too hard with your left thumb. That could be caused by an excessively heavy spring. But for someone new to the clarinet there should be no old habit from playing single-lip to unlearn.

Just play very short phrases - such as a one-octave scale at a relatively slow tempo - and rest between each phrase until you begin to develop some endurance. If your lips hurt, stop playing for a while.
