This would take around 1 week to heal.

The burn is not that bad.

You can heal it faster with application of Local Cortaid cream on the area twice a day for 5 days .

Okay and one more question , why is the burn white
Expert:  Dr. Pravin replied 1 year ago.

The area tends to get scalded and turns white because it is the lip mucosa . The skin is thinner on the lips area and hence burns white there.
