Hello

Thanks for posting your query.

I will be glad to be of assistance.

puffiness on the face in the mornings could be a sign of some kidney dysfunction.

The other reason could be due to allergy.

I would recommend that you consult your doctor who could then evaluate you for the same.

Also you can start taking an anti histaminic tablet like allegra to take care of any allergy if present.

However an evaluation by your doctor is highly recommended.

Please let me know if I can address any additional concerns for you.

Regards.
