It is an infection on a bigger scale than before. Treat yourself with tepid salt water (mild concentration) with an eye-dropper and your head tilted back. Also gurgle salt water. Do it several times a day, or at least 2x. Take an aspirin. Any kind of infection on the face has to be taken seriously. If there is no improvement in a day or two, see a doctor.
