Forehead area between eyes and the sides of face are swollen. Had sun burns. Causes ?

I am 22 years old, 128 lbs., and 5 5 . I have been in the sun all weekend, but thankfully only had a few minor burns due to my use of sunscreen. I noticed today that my forehead area between my eyes and along the sides of my face are swollen. I did not burn any on my face, but am not sure where this swelling is coming from. Does anyone know what may be causing this?

Thanks for posting your query.
You may have underlying fronatal sinusitis.
You should go for PNS x ray to confirm and should also consult with ENT surgeon.
Swelling at this site may not be due to sun burn.
