History noted. The tablet you have taken is an anti inflammatory and analgesic which will reduce the pain as well as swelling. You can take one or two doses of same for the next 2 days.Still if there is pain apply Thrombophob ointment locally on the hardened site thrice a day for 3 days. you will be free of pain and hardening.
Good day.
