Actually in the month of september i had some rashes in my face then i went to a doctor and he gave me some allergic tablets,on taking them it didn't decrease in turn it increased and after few days we confirmed it to be as chicken pox.I followed the diet precautions and after few days the cheeks got swollen and then it subsided and then i was okay.
Then before two weeks again one of my cheek was swollen and i had fever,we thought it was mumps and got treated for that,but even now it seems that one side of my cheek is swollen other thatn that i am okay. But i am not sure whether it is or it seems to be.
Even i have gone to skin specialist and he is not able to confirm whether it is swollen or not,and moreover he said i might have become allergic to some thing and you need to analyse it and stop taking it.
but now my pain is

1)I am not sure whether my cheeks are swollen,because whoever sees they first say no and then say it is slightly.So is there any way to confirm whether a cheek is swollen or not?

2)What can be the reason?

3)What can be the treatment for same?

please do help me because i am totally confused.
