I have swollen cheeks due to piercings. (3rd day) now I dont know which is best to take ibuprofen or naproxen 550mg. Which is best to reduce swelling?

Ibuprofen. They are essentially cousins. Ibuprofen starts working more quickly, but doesn't last as long so you have to repeat the dose more often.
