Child bit the lower lip, swollen, pus, black spot. Solution?

Hi, my 4 year old daughter slipped and bit the inside of her lower lip yesterday. It became swollen after her nap. We applied sm33 gel on it twice yesterday and this morning, it s looking even more swollen and pus-sy and there is a black spot on the swollen part. I ve given her panadol to help with the pain. The doctor is not available until late afternoon today. What else can i do to help her with her condition in the meanwhile? Thank you.

Thank you for your query on Healthcare Magic.
For injury on lip, you can apply a gel containing metronidazole thrice daily and for pain you can apply local anesthetic gel which contain benzocaine.
Give plenty of oral liquids and very soft diet.
The black spot is due to the clotted blood.
Nothing to worry as the mucosal lesions will heal fast.
Consult the doctor for physical examination and for prescription of medication.
Hope I have answered your query.
