Hi! So I am a teenage girl About an hour

Patient

Q: Hi! So I am a teenage girl. About an hour ago, I was melting something. Without thinking, I took some of it and touched it to my lip just to see if it was the right temperature. My lip ended up getting burned and I think even peeled off. There is a red spot where it feels raw, and around it I can see skin which forms the rest of my lip, like a layer got pulled off from the burn. At first, I put a cold damp towel on, and then some Vaseline. It swelled just a little, and it still hurts, but not that badly. Please help! I also want it to go away quickly and not be noticible. Thank you so much!
