21 female I woke up with my left eye swollen. by afternoon it was left side of face. I went to Dr and they thought MAYBE allergy to something and told me to take benadryl It does seems to be helping. I did have a red tender area in middle of forehead with very slight swelling 2 days earlier but it went away pretty quickly. Could this really be an allergy? 2 years ago I had swelling of hands or foot at different times just a time or two.... any suggestions what this could be?
I'm not a doc, but it sounds like a roaring infection to me. No insurance? Suck it up and dig up a couple of hundred to front a visit with your dentist, Many will accept a payment plan, and it's waay better than futzing with sinus surgery due to an extending tooth infection,
