I would MUCH rather have a lady-mustache than this

I got my upper lip threaded. Now my upper lip is covered in ingrown hair bumps. Help me make them go away!

This is so embarrassing. I went in for eyebrow threading, and the lady convinced me to get my upper lip done as well. I figured it couldn't hurt to try it once. Well, it did hurt, both in the literal sense of being super painful and in the figurative sense, because now I have two dozen miniscule zit-like bumps on my lip.
The threading was on Wednesday, and the bumps appeared on Friday. I figured they'd go away pretty quickly, but they're still there.
Guys. What do I do. I look completely ridiculous without makeup, and even with makeup it ain't exactly invisible. Is there any way to fix this? I tried exfoliation and a pore unclogging mask, and they didn't seem to help. Do I just wait it out, or is there some other way to deal with this?
