Medical Questions? Ask a Doctor Online!
HiWelcome to Just AnswerSorry to hear about your problem.
Do you have pain in the affected area as well?
If yes, how severe on a scale of 1 to 10?
Thanks for the input.
Well, there are a number of reasons for you to have this sudden swelling of the cheek.
Right now, you can take Motrin or Aleve (non-steroid anti-inflammatory drug---NSAID) to reduce pain and swelling.
Ice packs application to the affected area will also help, and see how you respond to these measures.
If the swelling/pain does not improve, persists, or gets worse, go to your doctor and have this examined physically to determine the exact underlying cause for this, which will direct a specific and targetted management plan; such as antibiotics for infection.
I hope this clarifies and answers your question.
Kindest Regards XXXXX XXXXX luck.
