Much depends on the underlying reason for the swelling.  Is this something recent or has it been a continuous problem?  If it is due to an allergic reaction - insect bite or contact with a plant - you can give plain benadryl at a rate of 1 mg per pound of your dog's body weight.  Do NOT use the benadryl (diphenhydramine generic) that also contains a decongestant.

If the swelling is due to a blow to the face or anything other than an allergy, then you need a veterinarian to evaluate the problem.
