First of all you need to suck some ice cubes frequently as Ice causes the swelling to decrease.
You can also put some sugar on the area of swelling as sugar has a hygroscopic property and would decrease the swelling.
Turmeric has anti-inflammatory and antibiotic properties and using mouth switches with turmeric solution made by mixing turmeric and water would help decrease the swelling and would also help against infection.
You may also take anti inflammatory medication like Ibuprofen to decrease the swelling.
If the spelling still persists, you will need to have a doctor look at it and prescribe you steroids which have got a strong anti inflammatory activity. Prescription antibiotics may also be needed in that case.
Feel free to ask any follow up questions.
Do take a moment to honour my work and time by rating my answer hopefully 5 stars.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
