Thanks for your question.

Lips are very vascular.

Hence, this will cause significant bleeding.

You should apply ice & pressure on the affected site for atleast 10 minutes.

You can lay down resting your head until the bleeding has stopped.

And do not drink out of a straw for a while to avoid any extra pressure that may cause it to bleed again.
