Applying a cold compress and having an anti-inflammatory medication
If you want to reduce inflammation, apply a bag of frozen vegetables or a cold pack to the side of your face for 15 to 20 minutes. Make sure you are using a piece of cloth as a buffer so that accidentally you do not damage your skin. This process helps in alleviating discomfort by reducing swelling and blunting pain.
If there are mild swelling and blunt pain signals, take an anti-inflammatory medication such as ibuprofen. If you are taking this medicine, you need to continue it every few hours that are mentioned on the label. Do not take for just once and then stop taking when you feel relief as the inflammation or else pain will return after a few hours. If you do not have this medicine, then take acetaminophen that will help in combating the pain, but it is not an anti-inflammatory medication.
