Dear Nisanth

I suggest you complete your antibiotic course. The swelling will take some time to go down. i suggest you use anti-bacterial mouthwash along with steam inhalation. Also please do tell me your age and if you have any other medical condition, this can point as to why you are having this problem. please also let me know if you smoke, or use any sort of tobacco? if you have any questions please feel free to contact me.

take care
