Hello and thanks for the query.

The answer to your question is yes you may take Zinnat for this. Zinnat should be effective in treating the underlying cause which is a bacterial infection which caused swelling and likely pain in the region. I would recommend you take this medicine for at least 10 days.

It is very important that if you see no interval improvement within 1 week that you see your doctor as sometimes it will be necessary to provide an alternative antibiotic to cover for more resistant bacteria.

In the meantime I recommend you spend some time in the bathtub twice daily - warm soaks lasting 20-30 minutes. This will also be therapeutic and should help some of the swelling.

I thank you again for the query and hope my response has been adequate and helpful. If you have any additional concerns I am here for you.
