Brief Answer:
Go to ER as soon as possible...

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Swelling in the face, even partially can be due to :
- local trauma
- skin infection
- mouth/teeth problems
- contact dermatitis

As you do not own a XXXXXXX phone to send in a photo, and if the swelling is as spreading, I highly recommend to go to ER as soon as possible.

Immediate diagnosis and treatment is required to prevent further spread.

Hope this helps.
