Naproxen probably won't reduce the swelling, a topical such as a corticosteriod that you can get from a physician or NP, or even over the counter hydrocortisone sterioid cream can help with it. over the counter medications are weaker and may take longer to see a result. there are also over the counter medications such as benadryl spray that will help reduce the redness and swelling and contain benzocaine that will numb the area temporarily.
