HELP SWOLLEN FACE!!!!!!!! in General acne discussion Posted July 21, 2007 Oh no no dont pick at it it could get worse! try bringing down the swelling with a cold damp cloth and girl at top is right, take some ibuprofen like advil to calm the inflammation. You might want to go see a dermatologist about that, you might need to have it injected with cortisone or possibly even drained. so yeah get that checked out!
