Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Swelling on one side of the face can occur due to poor blood flow, causing seepage of interstitial fluid (edema). This condition can be triggered by a mild cause, for example when you sleep too long on one side of your face. The swelling that results from this condition is not accompanied by pain and will get better on its own after removing the pressure.
Apart from the above, it could also be the swelling on one side of the face as you experience occurs due to other factors, for example:
Have an allergy, either to substances in contact with the skin (allergic contact dermatitis), or to substances that enter the body through other routes (for example, by inhalation or ingestion)
Post injury, for example due to being hit, hit
Inflammation, for example due to skin infections (cellulitis, abscesses, folliculitis, oral infections), irritation
Tumors, whether benign or malignant (eg sarcomas, cysts)
Impaired kidney or heart function, and so on
If the swelling on your face looks very noticeable and does not improve within 24 hours, we recommend that you get it checked directly to your doctor. Through a careful physical examination, your general practitioner can identify possible dangerous conditions. If necessary, the doctor will perform several tests, such as a biopsy, X-ray, or ultrasound.
In the meantime, try to get plenty of rest first while elevating the swollen side of the face. Avoid too much emphasis on the swollen side of the face. Also avoid applying anything to the swelling that appears, unless directed by a doctor. Compress the swollen face with warm water while gently pressing it (don't overdo it).
Hope it helps ..
