One of the most effective methods is using plane Vaseline in the area for the night. During the day, you can also use a balm like this: https://whatsinmyjar.com/product/la-roche-posay-cicaplast-baume-b5-soothing-repairing-balm.

Try to not use other products in the area (including lip balms - just Vaseline instead) until your skin gets better. If you can, it’s also best to avoid spicy and hot food getting on your lips. It can take up to 6-8 weeks to heal properly, but you should notice an improvement within a week already.

Another bit that is often overlooked is the toothpaste. Try to minimize the contact it has with your skin, and apply Vaseline in the area before brushing your teeth. You can also try a flavor-free toothpaste, but it’s not that easy to find and takes getting used to
