Ice: Treatment depends on the underlying diagnosis. This swelling could be an inflammation, allergy, or early infection. Try ice packs first to try to reduce the swelling. If this doesn't help at all and continues to worsen, see a physician for evaluation.

Warm compresses: You can try sitting up for awhile and applying warm compresses to the area. You can also take ibuprofen or acetaminophen if you have no medical reason that you cannot take those. If you develop a fever, headache, or this is worsening or not improving, please see a doctor.
