Hi Chris, It takes at least 48 hours for antibiotics to show their effect. Are you on pain killers as well? If yes, that will reduce the pain and inflammation to a certain extent. Do continue to take medications like antibiotics as advised by your doctor. However, if the swelling is progressively increasing in size, do visit your doc. Regards, Dr. Divya
