Facial Swelling

Sometimes you may wake up with a swollen, puffy face. This may happen as a result of pressure being placed on the face while sleeping. However, a swollen, puffy face can also arise from a facial injury or indicate an underlying medical condition.

Facial swelling doesn’t just include the face, but can also affect the neck or throat. If there are no injuries to the face, facial swelling can indicate a medical emergency. In most cases, a medical professional should treat facial swelling.
