Thanks for query,
it seems that you have got super added infection over fungal infection due to itching causing this problem.
Go for oral antibiotic medicine for 3-4 days.
Apply anti bacterial, anti fungal creams.
apply some smoothing cream on lips.
For few days do not wide open your mouth to allow scratch to heal.
Take anti histamine medicine like cetrizine for itching.
Ok and bye.
