Hello, and I am pleased to help, use of my answers are for educational purposes only.
Your lip is very vascular and pressure is about the best that you can do, and use a moist paper towel for the pressure. Also, if you are on medications such as naprosyn, motrin, alleve, or asprin, this can prolong the bleeding. If you are truly bleeding then you should take a trip to the emergency room to get this stopped.
