Your symptoms are suggestive of;

Acute Rhinitis

Acute sinusitis

Acute rhinosinusitis.

Usually this is bacterial infection which causes surrounding tissue inflammation and thus swelling under the eye.

You may need to go to urgent care or emergency room for the evaluation and a course of antibiotic.

You may meanwhile do following;

Ice compresses.

Motrin

Saline nasal drops.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.
