    Good morning. Sorry about that. When did you notice this? How old is your son? Is the swelling increasing in size? Would it be possible for you to upload a clear picture so I can see the lesion? Awaiting your response. Thanks

    Hello. Since the background information is scanty, the possible causes of the swelling include insect bite leading to a reaction, contact dermatitis, injury, infection, cellulitis. My advice to you would be to take your child to an Ophthalmologist to find what the exact cause because treatment would depend on the cause. If you have further questions, please let me know. Take care
