Do many of your patients complain of a swollen and discolored bottom lip from sun exposure? I have gotten purplish colored spots on my lower lip since becoming sun sensitive. On some days, it looks like that lip is very swollen underneath – it’s most apparent when I smile. Just wondering if there could be some simple reason for this that is treatable – a specific vitamin or mineral deficiency, or other condition? Thank you.

Yes, some of my patients do have a swollen lip but the exact cause is unknown.
