Unhappy Swollen Lip?

One of my sorority gals is not doing well.... Ever since pebbles died, the whole mood of the sorority has been out of whack. The rest of the girls are doing a lot better and getting back to normal, but Mulan has lost some color and has been hiding in the same spot for days. Today, I decided to remove her and give her a little vacation tank with some aquarium salt and an IAL. I noticed that in addition to just looking plain peaky and depressed, the little section right above her top lip (I guess you could call it her nose) looks swollen. I don't dare take any pics of her right now for fear it will stress her more, but I was wondering if anyone has ever seen anything like this?

Does any other part of her look bloated or swollen too? Or is it just her lip? Can she still eat OK?

If it's only her lip, and doesn't affect her ability to eat, I would just QT for awhile in order to keep an eye on her. It could just be an injury.
