Brief Answer: If swelling and pain increases-then see the doctor Detailed Answer: Hello, I have studied your case with diligence. As per your history you may need to take analgesic [like diclogesic] and Trypsin chymotrypsin [Enzomac] twice daily to reduce pain and swelling. If there is persistent pain and swelling is increasing then you need to consult doctor and if required X XXXXXXX face can be taken. Usually nasal and maxilla fracture are common in this area.
