Thank you for the question.
Wounds on the lips caused by nails can be dangerous or not. If this wound is deep, wide, or caused by dirty and rusty nails, then this wound needs to be more careful. Because, often, injuries like this can be the focus of infectious diseases, including tetanus which can be life threatening if it is too late to be treated. White bumps around your scars can occur due to residual clumping inflammatory tissue, but can also indicate pus that appears due to infection in the wound. Better, so that your wound condition is handled properly, you consult yourself directly to a doctor, dermatologist, or surgeon. By examining the wound directly, of course the doctor better understands what the condition of the wound is, and what kind of appropriate treatment steps are taken to treat it.
In the meantime, you can treat the wound first by:
Clean the wound on your lips with a sterile gauze soaked in NaCl liquid, don't rub excessively, just press it so that the dirt on it is lifted. Don't forcibly poke the white lumps that appear around the wound. Don't bite or suck the lips carelessly balanced nutritious food, including fruits. Don't smoke. Hope it helps.
