Hi there ...

Thank you for your question ....

Post trauma swelling of soft tissue is common specially around eyes because of the reason that lax tissues are more around eye , and this is body response against trauma .

You shouldn't worry for that , this takes almost 2 weeks to settle .

Antinflammaroy pills like Tab Ibuprofen 400 mg three times a day will gelp you out .

Cold sponging of area is also helpful .

Regards ***** ***** luck .

Please rate my answer as good service .

Thanks .

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
why did it take a whole day for the swelling to come up and no brusing?
Expert:  Dr. Abid replied 10 months ago.

Because blunt trauma present in same way , and bruising presents with BOTH SWELLING AND BRUISE .

So you have blunt trauma .
