Bruised, swollen, and cut face. The swelling has not reduced yet. Is there a fear of infection?

I got punched in the face about 4 days ago. It is still swollen and a little cut up still. I haven t iced that much and I need to know if I should go to the doctor to see if its infected or it just takes a while for swelling to go down. The inside is swollen to. And should the swelling go down after all the cuts are healed??? help

Hi thanks for your question.
Your face is cut bruised and swollen and you have not seeked any medical advice.Although swelling will disappear once the bruise and cuts get healed but you should seek medical advice urgently to prevent ( treat if already infected ) any infection and prevent scaring on face.
Hope this answers your question.
