Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
A painful swelling under the eyelid may be a sign of any of the following conditions:
Preseptal cellulitis (inflammation of the soft tissue around the eyes) Sinusitis (inflammation of the sinus cavities) Insect bite Contact dermatitis (skin inflammation triggered by contact with an irritating or allergenic substance) Gingival abscess (pus-filled sac in the gums) Atopic dermatitis (chronic skin inflammation caused by hypersensitivity reactions), for example when you have finished consuming certain foods or drugs Parotitis (parotid gland infection) Sialoliths (blockage of the salivary glands due to crystallized saliva) Sialadenitis (inflammation of the salivary glands) Skin infections (such as abscesses, folliculitis), etc. Swelling what you are experiencing at this time could be related to colds and coughs, for example due to the spread of inflammation from the airways, or also related to the side effects of the drugs you are taking to treat colds and coughs. However, these two conditions can also occur due to causes that are different from one another.
You can check your complaint directly to the doctor so that it can be evaluated, whether any special examinations or treatments have been carried out. In large enough swelling, your doctor may recommend that you undergo blood tests, X-rays, or ultrasound. Alternatively, the doctor will refer you to the right specialist if necessary.
In the meantime, try to reduce the swelling that appears by compressing it with warm water. Avoid too much pressure on the swollen side of the cheek, or chewing hard food on the side of the tooth where the cheek is swollen. Drink more, eat foods rich in vitamin C, slice your teeth regularly, and get plenty of rest. Stay away from cigarettes and alcohol. Avoid exposure to cold, dust, and pollution to let rocks and flu subside. If the pain in the cheek is very disturbing, you can take paracetamol for initial treatment before going to the doctor.
Hope this helps ..
