How can I reduce swelling due to infection?

Take good antibiotics if there is wound proper care of that like dressing


Any kind of infection causes inflammation, which is the body's way to respond to such infection. Inflammation means swelling, increase in temperature, redness, and pain in the infected part. Swelling automatically goes as the body controls infection.

Sometimes, one can use antibiotics (antivirals or antifungals as well) to control infection as well as anti-inflammatory drugs to control swelling and pain. Common examples are paracitamol, diclofenac, ibuprofen, etc. Hot water bag or ice is also used to reduce swelling. Magnesium sulfate dressing is also used for such purpose. The way of reducing swelling depends upon the kind of infection and the part of body involved.

swelling is a sign of inflammation. the inflammation is your body reaction against infection. just take your antibiotic. keep the infected area clean and dry. or you can take some anti inflammatory pills.
