Swelling on right side of face between ear and eye? Feels like bone?

by Rebecca
(Winter Garden, FL USA)

We have a 9 year old male JR and he pawed at his face and we looked down and it's swollen on the right side of his face between the ear and eye, feels like bone, not tissue. He still has his energy and he's pretty healthy.

Maybe sting or spider bite
by: Max's Best Friend

I agree with the bee sting or spider bite. The swelling should go down some in a couple hours. We gave Max a half a Benadryl when he was stung recently. Seemed to help pretty quickly. Nothing keeps these little guys down. Even when Max had a broken leg he still wanted to be just as active. That was a hard few weeks. Hope your baby is better soon.
