  • WEIRD! I would definitely go to the doctor. I am not someone that goes to the doctor for any little thing and I would still go see a doctor.

  • sounds like it could be a sinus infection

  • I would see a doctor. It may be a sinus infection. If it swells near the location of your sinus cavities, it could be a serious enough infection to cause a brain infection...death follows if untreated.
