Palate larger than usual and fallen. By gargle will it come back to its place?

Sunday, I ate some crackers and a piece of the cracker scraped against something in my throat and then next day when I began to swollow, it felt like the food hit something in my throat. I looked into my mouth and it looks like my palate is larger than usual and I think that it has also fallen some. How do you get the palate to life back in place. I was told to gargle with salt water and it would eventually go back in place. What would you recommend.

Nothing much needs to be done at this moment in time. The palate is normal I think you might not have seen it earlier in detail. You need to use betadine Mouth gargle to keep infection off. Vit B supplements will help. Dont consume very hot and spicy food so that the healing happens fine. If you dont find improvement in the next 48hrs u need to see an ENT
