Hello,

You may take Ibuprofen (Motrin / Advil). It has anti-inflammatory action (swelling reducing action). It is likely to help. If the swelling increases or other symptoms like pain, redness or tenderness develops; you would need to consult your doctor.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

 

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.
