Brief Answer:
Maybe this swelling has no relation with the flu situation.

Detailed Answer:
Thank you writing in healthcare magic.

Please could you tell me how many days you have fever and value of fever.
I suggest to do a full blood count, azotemia, creatinin, tot proteine, albuminemia, and to meet an alergologist as well.Maybe this edema has no relation with the flu situation.
After using oseltamivir did you have any improvement?

I hope my answer helps you.
