Mederma can work if it is on the outside, but not inside the lip. ...Read more

If you are prone to get freckles, which often darken in sunlight, that might be the problem here -- i.e. freckles more prominent as a result of doxycycline. This is only a guess. If that's it, the spots should lighten soon. If they do not, see a doctor, preferably a dermatologist. ...Read more
