Hi, Sunny,
Thanks for query.
It seems that due to over waxing on the lips there might be irritation and infection on the part.
Go for an antibiotic medicines for 3-4 days and apply antibiotic and moisturizing cream on the affected part.
It will be healed within few days without having scar.
Ok and bye.
