Facial injury, swollen lip, cut on upper lip, white discolouration. Will salt water help?

Hi My older brother punched me in my face the night before last night and I have a swollen lip and a cut inside of my upper lip that is turned white. My mom told me to swish with salt water and eat soup but I want to know if I am going to be alright. Also can my brother go to jail because he is not a good person and desrves to get punished?

Salt water mouth washes is the right treatment for your cut lip. it is likely to fully recover over the next few days.
It wasn't right that your brother punched you but it seems a bit harsh wanting him to go to jail.
