  • Here are few home  remedies to treat the swelling:

    *Ask your friend to rinse her mouth with warm saline gargles. The mixture can be made by mixing ½ tablespoon salt to 8 oz. of warm water. She must do mouth wash rinses every hour.

    *Applying a cold compress helps reduce swelling. Make sure not to apply ice directly over the skin as it can damage the skin and increase the pain.She can wrap the ice cubes in a bath towel and then apply over the affected region. The time for application is 20 minutes off and 20 minutes on.

    *Advice her to take OTC drugs like ibuprofen.
