In brief: Yes, can happen

It isn't uncommon to still have some progression of swelling after 24 hours.
Clean area with soap ; warm water. Apply ice (bag of frozen peas) in 10 min. Increments; alternating 10 on ; 10 off. You can take meds like tylenol, (acetaminophen) Aspirin or Motrin for pain or Benadryl for swelling. Make a paste of 2 parts baking soda ; 1 part water ; apply. Throat, airway, mouth swelling or difficulty breathing?
