Ointment for Lip Scar?

I have a healing wound on my lower lip. Its not through the border, it starts halfway up my lip and goes half way down the other side. I unfortunately did not get stitches. I am applying vaseline and Neosporin, can I apply this too often, how long should I keep the laceration moist? It happened 5 days ago.

Neosporin will help your wound epithelialize.  If there is a scar, I would recommend early scar revision to remove the scar on the lip.
