Thanks for writing to us.

I understand your concern.

It is common for young one to have such kind of injuries.

I suggest you to apply cold compresses over injured area.

Give him plenty of fluid and diet like kheer,custurd,fruit.
Also you can give ice cream as it be soothing.
Healing will be there in a couple of days as lip area is vascular.

Hope I have answered your query,if you have further question I would be glad to help.

Wishing your baby good health.

God bless...
