Cyst in head, had it removed, swelling under eye. Why did this happen?

I just had a cyst removed from the top left of my head. I had some swelling on the left side of my forehead when I got home from the doctor's office on Monday. Now the swelling has moved from my forehead and onto my left eye lid. As the day has progressed, I now have swelling under my eye, too. Is it normal to have this happen? When I talked to the receptionist yesterday, she said that I may have some swelling.

After surgical intervention in the forehead, the occurence of cellulitis in the surrounding areas in common and more so in the areas around eyes. There is nothing much to worry. You should take oral anti-biotics and anti-inflammatory tablets and use some anti-biotic drops in both eyes. For a better healing, you can also take tablets of Vitamin C in adequate doses.

This should solve your problem in about 72 hours.
