Fell flat on face. Upper lip swollen, numb. Took tetanus injection. When will it return to normal?
Hello, yesterday i fell flat on my face while playing catch and cook and all i could feel was my upper lip was hurt because while touching with my tounge it was bit swollen but it was numb as i didnt feel the pain. i also got some abrasion on my face and also my the chin bone is paining a bit, then i went to a doctor he gave me tetanus injection on my lower back in right side and gave some medicines which had written schedule H drug on it. after coming home my upper lip was very swollen from outside aswell as from inside it became swollen and red and a bit of a white line. when i woke up today morning both my lip were stuck to each other and even my right leg was paining whole day and at times just in a small part of my upper lip it burns if i roll my tounge there. i am bit nervous as i have a perty in 2 days and i dont want to look awful. And i forgot to mention i tried using some ice cubes and the swelling reduced from outside but my lips are very much dried up especially my lower lip . will i look normal agian? how much time will it take to cure this thing? please help me!
Hello, Apply dologel on your lips. Take plenty of fluids and nutritious diet to prevent dehydration. Maintain oral care. Swish with warm saline and betadine. Take vitamin becosules and iron supplements. Avoid intake of spicy foods. Hope this helps.
