Hematoma in lip

My upper lip got cut when I fell down while riding a bike. It is cut both on the outside and inside(because of teeth). It was two days ago. The bleeding has mostly stopped but there is a lot of swelling in the lip(hematoma). Right now I am just taking a course of antibiotics and cleaning the wound regularly. What can I do so that swelling goes away faster and I can return to work.

There are no quick fix method and your home remedy is healthy diet rich in Vitamin b12 & c and allow body to heal itself. You can also try warm compresses since its a two day old wound, but any active signs of bleeding refrain from using the same.
