There is a product called Neosporin for lips that can help to sooth the lip and not cause a reaction with him licking it or getting it into his mouth. This will not only soothe it but allow for less chance of infection to spread also. If it is showing signs of healing that is good but to prevent infection and also alllow for the proper amount of moisture to not allow the skin to crack the easier and more effective this will be at healing.
