General & Family Physician 's  Response
Such types of swelling get reduced in few days after the injury or stitches
Keep your wound clean and take proper medications consisting of antibiotics and anti inflammatories.
There is no specific medicine to reduce swelling or induce faster healing and also no medicine is there to prevent scar marks.
