Dachs pup is red around mouth

I have a 3 month old dachshund pup.  I got him about 3 weeks ago.  He has been getting red around his mouth, and it's bumpy.  One of his eye lids is also bumpy.  Any ideas what this could be?

Do you feed & water out of plastic bowls?

I just got back from the Vet; he said probably auto immune, but could be the plastic food bowl.  I got rid of the plastic bowl and the pup has started antibiotics.  If there's no improvement in 4 to 5 days he'll start prednisone.  I did research after posting this question here, and it looks like "puppy strangles"  which is a rare auto immune disorder in some pups, though it could also be an allergy to plastic.
