Redness, burning above upper lip post waxing. Remedy?

i was waxing my upper lip and being an amateur did it rather roughly, some portions of my upper lip seem red and are burning, they are quite prominent. i can t deduce whether its my epidermal layer that has come off or whether its a blood clot inside. please give advice for quick treatment as i have an important meeting tomorrow.
