In brief: Several choices

Try Bacitracin ointment or blistex creme.
Both will sooth and aid healing.

Use a lip ointment with the ingredient dimethicone.

In brief: Good

Good old vaseline will help moisturize, but not irritate your lips.
Stronger, medicated lip balms could sting or be uncomfortable on the areas of injury. Watch for signs and symptoms of infection such as increasing redness, swelling, pain, fever, or drainage of pus. If you see any of these, call your doctor.
