Patient : I had chapped lips, and pulled off some of the dead skin. One section was deeper than just the top layer, and it hurt when i peeled it, and bled a little. Now, over a month later, this section is a little puffy, and looks red underneath the top layers of skin. It also stings a little when I put lip gloss on. What should I do to heal this section, or will my lip always look like this.
