Hi there and thank you for the question. I am a Registered Nurse and will be happy to help you today.

Sounds like you have some congestion (sinus issues). Sinus issues can cause you to have facial swelling and tenderness and a terrible sinus headache. You can put some warm wet washcloths over your face and this will help. The Ibuprofen will help with the pain and tenderness. If you can take a decongestant, this will also help with your symptoms.
