Brief Answer:
It is not visible well from the photo if it is swollen. Provide more info.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

Thank you for using Healthcaremagic to post your health query.
I saw carefully your picture.

I cannot say if your tongue is swollen, because I need to compare it with the situation before.

Do you feel anything? - numbness, pain?
Why are you concerned it may be swollen?
Please kindly let me know more information about your problem and I will be happy to help with advises.

If worse or not better, I would recommend seeing a local doctor.

Hope this is helpful.
Let me know if you need more clarifications.

Regards,
Dr. Papaqako

Brief Answer:
Doesn't seem to be having a reaction

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

Thank you for the follow-up question.

When the tongue swells up it burns and hurts.

Anyway, if you are allergic from anything and you have taken that, the allergy reaction may start from the moment you taken it until some days later. So be careful and keep an Epipen (adrenaline dose) with you.

Let me know if you have other questions or concerns.

Regards,
Dr.Papaqako
