Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.
One of the things you need to worry about is a skin infection called cellulitis
. This is where bacteria get under you skin and spread rapidly.
In this area of your face it can become serious fairly quickly.
I don't mean to worry you, but from what you have posted, it would probably be a good idea to have it checked out at the ER this morning.
It just might turn out to be nothing, but if it is cellulitis, every hour of delay in getting treatment, especially around your eye and nose, is significant.
It is better to be safe than sorry...
Is there anything else you would like to discuss at this point or have all your questions been answered to your satisfaction?
