Upper lip redness: I suspect that you are repeatedly (if unconsciously) licking your upper lip.  this causes mild inflammation, which blunts the contrast between your lip and skin.  this is a hard habit to break, but if you're doing it, you won't clear up completely unless you stop licking.

Will power: This is a common habit that people have similar to nail biting. I myself have been a nail biter and its a very hard habit to get rid of. The simple answer is will power. You just have to notice when you are biting your cheek, what causes you to do it? Stress? I just talked myself out of the habit because i knew it was nasty and made my nails look bad. You might also try counseling or hypnosis.

May be a cold sore: It might be a cold sore (oral herpes infection) but it's hard to say without actually seeing it. Consult your dermatologist for a more accurate diagnosis.
