... its working... is there anything i can do to reduce the swelling?
Hello dansub23. You could try some benadryl. I can't guarantee it will help, but doesn't interact with your zolina. I am giving you a list of the side effects, & suggest if they get worse or you have any difficulty with breathing to get ahold of your doctor right away or go to the ER. Best wishes to you...
