Brief Answer:
It could be due to allegry

Detailed Answer:

Thanks for your query.

I have seen the image you have attached. Considering the swelling with mild hyperemia and shiny skin, I strongly suspect the swelling to be due to allergy.

Allergy could be due to any substance which you might have been exposed recently. Do take a dose of Benadryl which will bring down the symptoms.

If it is progressive then you may have to visit your nearest doctor to get a shot of anti allergic medication.

Do try to identify the allergen and avoid it in future as the subsequent reactions can be stronger.

Hope, I answered your query.
