Infection!: The pimple in your mouth could be from an abcessed tooth--the pus trying to escape through your gums. The swelling in your jaw and neck could also be from a tooth abcess--the infection spreading from the bone into the soft tissues. See a dentist asap!

Oral steroids: Probally not. Oral steroids are a better choice.
My uvula has been swollen several times this year. It happens when I wake up from lying on my back. I also notice dry mouth. How can I reduce swelling?
Sinusitis possible: Seems likely to be the result of post-nasal drainage, so there may be the possibility of chronic sinusitis that could respond positively to more water and regularly eating fresh pineapple. You may also have a dietary allergy like dairy products that often cause increased sinus drainage. If the symptoms persist, however, then I think seeing your primary care provider will be important.
I wear a retainer during the day, not at night; because of this I have swollen gums on the roof of my mouth. What should I do to reduce the swelling?
Adjustment: The practitioner who made the appliance for you should be contacted for a reexamination. Your retainer may need an adjustment. Swollen gums may also be due to many other reasons, including gum disease, diabetes, thrush, candida, etc. Call your Dentist or Orthodontist now, then clean the retainer by putting it into denture cleaner (follow package instructions).See 2 more doctor answers
Ice: Apply ice for 10 to 15 mins at a time to help reduce swelling. A bag of frozen peas is good.
Natural process: Your lip ring placement caused trauma to the lip and it is a foreign body. The immediate response is inflammation (red, hot, tender swelling). This is the body increasing the blood flow to the injury to bring healing factors to the area and also the veins expand to carry bad stuff away. Gentle cleansing, applying ice to the area and using antiinflammatory medications motrin.Advil (ibuprofen) will help.
Consider cool: Liquids. Tongue piercing comes w continued pain as well as swelling, tenderness, bleeding & bruising for around 5 days. If the swelling makes it difficult to breath then you need emergent medical evaluation to ensure that your airway does not become compromised. If the tongue is seeping drainage that is other then white-colored or that is malodorous – then seek medical care for a possible infection
Avoid certain foods: Most importantly you should avoid those foods that you are sensitive to. An antihistamine like Benadryl (diphenhydramine) can be helpful for minor swelling once the swelling has occurred. Be aware that swelling of the tongue due to an allergic reaction can be very serious and a visit to the emergency room may be needed.See 1 more doctor answer

Natural process: The good news is that area has fantastic blood supply and healing occurs rapidly. Inflammation (red, hot, tender swelling) is the body increasing blood flow to the injury to bring healing factors and also the veins expand to carry bad stuff away. Dressings and ointments are of no value there. Avoid further trauma to the area and let nature take it's course. Protective lip balm will help reduce pain.
Tongue Swelling: True tongue swelling should be evaluated urgently as it could represent an underlying allergic reaction. Often the oral mucosa/tongue is effected first in an anaphylactic response particularly to something ingested. Massive tongue swelling can lead to airway blockage which can be an emergency. Best not to ignore this kind of problem if significant. Hope this helps.
