RICE Therapy: RICE is an acronym for treatments used to reduce swelling after an injury. RICE stands for Rest, Ice, Compresion and Elevation. While it is not practical to compress your lip, the other three still apply. Time is also on your side, as the swelling should be peaking, and will begin to subside as your healing progresses.

I had all my teeth removed 2 days ago and have stitches all throughout my mouth i still have a lot of sweling how can I reduce it can I use hot or cold?
Nothing, time: If your teeth were removed 2 days ago, and everything is healing well, and you have no infection, then it will just take time for the swelling to go down on its own. Definitely not cold! Mild heat may help, but without being your dentist of record, I would not recommend it. The best thing to do is to speak to the dentist who actually removed your teeth for advice and guidance. Feel better soon. ...Read more

But it could be more serious like an infection/abscess, that may need antibiotic and surgical drainage/removal. A human bite is the dirtiest and most dangerous in the animal kingdom.
