Swelling developing in an hour is likely to be allergic in nature but an element of infection can not be ruled out. If it disappears or considerably improves in short time then it is very likely to be allergic in nature. It could be due to an insect bite as well. An examintion by a doctor will be helpful. If it does not show signs of improvement in a few hours, you should visit a doctor. Thanks.
