  • Allergic reaction. If that is it then a very bad one at that. Take an antihistamine & either call a Dr. or go to the ER immediately! What did you eat or what bit you?

  • Does your insurance have a nurse hotline? If so, call and ask them or call your doctors office's emergency line and see what they say. A sty would have a small red pimple type spot and cause swelling. An allergic reaction can cause a bit of swelling, but usually redness. I think you're better off calling a professional so they can ask the appropriate questions to decide what it is.
