Aloha! You're speaking with Dr. Michael Salkin
You've described swelling of both the brow and conjunctiva (chemosis) suggestive of trauma or perhaps envenomation by flying insect or spider. Can you upload a photo of this area to our conversation? You can use the paperclip icon in the toolbar above your message box (not if you're using the chrome browser) or you can use an external app such as imgur.com or dropbox.com. I can be more accurate for you if I can see what you're seeing.
