Brief Answer:
If it just happened, probably an allergy!

Detailed Answer:
Hi and thank you so much for this query.

I am so sorry to hear about this swollen eyelid and tongue. If this juts happened alongside other symptoms such as itches, this will be suggestive of an allergy. I will recommend benadryl in this case.

If this has been going on for a while, then we will need to evaluate fully to establish what the exact cause of this is. For this, May I kindly request that you upload an image for review?

I hope to hear from you and promise to respond promptly. Until next, I wish you well.
