I am 21 years old and in late June my cheek swelled up after about 2 weeks of it not going away my doctor gave me steroids and said it was my allergies. The last day of the steroids the swelling finally went away. Back in Ocotober it Happend again and I got steroids again and ammoxicilan just in case it was a sinus infection and I went to go see an allergist. The steroids didn't work neither did the medicine and my cheek has been swollen ever since but now around my eye is swollen, it kind of looks like a big bump. My allergist thaught maybe I had cellulitus and gave me medicine for that and that did work but now I also have sweling around my left eye. I have tried everything. I put a cold face mask on my eyes everyday sometimes up to five times a day and it doesn't work. I've been putting creams around my eyes and thats not doing anything. I had a CT scan done and it only showed I had a very small sinus infection. I don't know what is happening to me. I'm only 21 and I feel my face is just falling apart. Does anybody know what this could be? I am desperate.

  • My left cheek, and underneath /behind both eyes are swollen, I have been on 3 rounds of antibiotics and 5 rounds of steroids. I had a sinus infection, although that didnt show up until about a month after all the swelling started. My sinuses are clear, I still have the swelling and just dont feel good. If you figure out whats wrong, please let me know.
