Hello and thank you for your question,

I am so sorry you have been waiting for an answer for so long. It seems that your question was placed in the wrong category and was only recently transferred to the health category.

To reduce swelling you need to apply ice pack. Ice is one of the best anti-inflammatories. Besides ice, I would not recommend you use anything for the swelling. It will go down on its own.

To help the rug burn you can use a couple of things...you can use a produce called ound Be Gone which promotes skin healing. You can also use small amount of A&D ointment which is a very gentle ointment and helps with skin healing as well.

I hope you find this information helpful. Please feel free to follow-up with any other questions you might have. Again, I apologize for a long wait in receiving an answer.
