Which over the counter medicine, reduces swelling? Ibuprofin or acetiminophin ?
Have a swollen gum near a bad tooth. 2 weeks to dentist. Help.

Ibuprofen. It is a non-steroidal anti inflammatory agent.

Ibuprofen (Motrin) is an anti-inflammatory and should reduce the pain and swelling.
I'm not a doctor but I will remind you that taking 4 200mg tables (over-the-counter strength) is the exact same thing as taking 1 800mg tablet that the dr. prescribes.
However, you must assume any risk of doing that without a dr.'s advice.

most hospitals give Ibuprophine to help and put ice on it to releave the swelling also

Ibuprofen is considered anti-inflammatory.

ibuprofen reduces the swelling i get in my right knee.and takes away the pain.so i would go with that.

Ibuprofen is an anti-inflammatory so it would probably be best but it'd probably be a good idea to ask your pharmacist.

I'm a dentist.

Neither. While ibuprofen is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory (i.e. NSAID), it is not suitable for reducing swelling. It is suitable for controlling inflammation.

A swollen "gum" caused by a bad tooth is an infection, the source of which (i.e. the nerve of the tooth) must be removed. You might also need to be placed on antibiotics.

Tylenol will only help with the pain, not swelling.
Any NSAID will help you out --- Naproxen, Ibuprofen, etc.

Bear Naked
The swelling is probably caused by an infection. OTC swelling reducers will be ineffectual. Get antibiotics from the emergency services.


Ibuprofen will help to reduce the swelling, acetaminophen does not block COX-2, so it is not anti-inflammatory. Remember to swallow it, as just holding the pill up to your tooth doesn't work (and idiots have killed their gums doing that with aspirin)
