Answer by  patti (29325)

It is important to determine the cause of the inflammation and to make sure that infection is not involved. A group of medications called NSAIDs includes aspirin, ibuprofen (Motrin) and naproxen sodium (Aleve). There are some herbal remedies that are thought to reduce inflammation as well.
