Hello there.

I can understand your concern.
You need to apply T-Bact ointment over the area so that it doesn't get infected.
For pain and swelling you can take a combination of diclofenac and serratiopeptidase like tab. Lyser-d twice a day for 3 days after food.
It will reduce gradually.
Best regards.
