sunburned lips

I have sunburned lips. They are slightly discolored (red)  and very swollen and somewhat painful. I've tried aloe, vaseline, olive oil, cold compresses and ice bag. Is there something I can do that will reduce the swelling and speed the healing proecess?

Hello,
For sunburnt lips, contine with the cold compresses, the moisturizers and aloe vera. In addition take some anti-inflammatory drugs like acetaminophen or Ibuprofen after consulting your doctor.  Also use a lipbalm that includes sunscreen so you can avoid continued sun exposure.

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
