Brief Answer:
enzyme preparations can help

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Thanks for your query.

I understand your concerns. As all scans are normal, the swelling should soon go away.

If it's causing much distress, enzyme preparations like chymotrypsin can help.

Best is to give time.

Hope this helps.

it is an enzyme to digest tissue debris

Sometimes we use it to reduce swelling from trauma or surgery.

For the rough area, aloe Vera cream can help.

No diet restrictions required.

Brief Answer:
here we can give some guidance only

Detailed Answer:
You have already seen a doc. We can give you some guidance regarding what you can try further. But without seeing a patient, all doctors are forbidden to write any prescription, by the laws of the state. This is to ensure safety of patients.

Hope you understand.
