The swelling on your eyebrow that was drained was a pustular infected lesion. What you have now sounds like cellulitis or an inflammation of the soft tissue on that side of the face secondary to the infected swelling. Firstly check the vision in the eye on the affected side by closing your other eye and wearing your glasses if you have them. Also make sure you do not have any double vision, redness in the eye and no pain in the eye on the affected side. You have not mentioned any history of fever so I am going to assume you are afebrile. You will require a course of oral broad spectrum antibiotics like Cefuroxime 2 times a day. Along with this you may take a non steroidal antiinflammatory like Ibuprofen twice a day as well. This should subside or reduce in a couple of days though you need to keep a check on your vision and eye movements to be on the safe side.
