Cut in chin, blood came out. Face started swelling after taking sauna bath. Irritation after shaving.Is it skin infection and how to rectify?

i think i have a skin infection , i cut my chin awhile back and it wasn t to bad but did draw quite a bit of blood, the next day while at the gym i was in the sauna when my face started swelling up instantly and aggressively. ever since that day my face has been slightly swollen ( cheeks, eyes, chin) and irritated (especially after shaving). like i said i think its a skin infection, although there is no physical sign on my skin ( bumps, rash, ect.) i don t know if its possible to have a skin infection beneath the top layer of skin. any direction on my case would be much appreciated.

Yes it certainly is possible to have skin infection beneath the top layer. If the face is still swollen, and specially warm & sensitive to touch, you better see a good physician ASAP. Also get your blood count & blood sugar test done.
Best Wishes.
