HI and welcome.

You can decrease swelling by rubbing gently lightly warm mustard oil over the area and keeping ice compresses every two hourly for 2 to 3 minutes. Try to keep your face over two pillows while lying down. If swelling is because of allergic reaction taking antihistamine tablet available over the counter can reduce swelling. Reduce water and salt intake.

Let me know if you have further questions.
