Welcome to Healthcare Magic Forum

Looks like you have developed a lesion of Vector dermatitis..also known as Paederus dermatitis..
Paederus dermatitis is a peculiar, irritant contact dermatitis characterized by a sudden onset of red lesions on exposed areas of the body. The disease is provoked by an insect belonging to the genus Paederus.
Now as in your case the lesion is persisting since 4 days, you need to apply an antibiotic/steroid combination cream over the lesion (something like flutibact, fucibet) twice a day.
Take oral antihistamine like levocetrizine once a day to decrease the swelling

Do not use any moisturizer or lipstick over the lips till the time the lesion heals

Hope it helps
Wishing you speedy recovery
