Thank you for your question.I think that it just may be some inflammation in there, in which case it should settle on its own as it heals up.So I would wait for a few days i.e. three to five days.If symptoms persist you may require a course of an antibiotic like metronidazole (flagyl) 500 mg three times a day for five to seven days.Let me know if you have more questions.Rate me when you are done asking.Regards
