Detailed Answer:
Hii. Hope you are doing well.

The history you have given is insufficient. Do you have any history of allergic symptoms like sneezing, watering nose,headache,trauma? Do you have any dental procedure done? Its very unlikely to decrease any swelling only by sneezing. It may be that you are having allergic rhinosinusitis. Do a X ray Paranasal sinus and endoscopy nose by ENT surgeon. Review with the reports. In the meantime you can start nasal fluticasone spray, antiallergic tablet.

No I don’t have any allergies. My concern that because of the blow to my eye and cheek that was starting to heal and the swelling was almost all gone. That one sneeze made my eye close completely and I could feel it fill with fluid. My complete eyelid is not red not black kinda like a blood blister . thank you

Detailed Answer:
Hii. If you are feeling your eye filled with fluid with that sneezing you definitely need to consult Ent specialist and eye surgeon. Sometimes blow to eye cause damage of the inner and lower wall of eye which is close to nose and cheek. Then any increase of pressure of cheek or now cause bleeding in eye. So do endoscopy nose,x ray paranasal sinus and eye check up and review with reports.
