Emervel into cheeks
Any time you are having this much pain or swelling after a procedure you should seek medical assistance in person. Even though you've taken the prescription for 4 days, that may not have been enough time to combat an infection you've had for a month. While bruising and swelling are common after fillers, it should not be as bad as you are describing or for as long. I would recommend you go a few more days with the prescription and then follow up with your physician again.
