Hi welcome to Health care magic forum.
Thanks for choosing H.C.M.Forum.
According to your description it appears to be an allergic reaction, with super infection with bacteria. You may also should be treated for allergic reaction as well. You may need to use steroids as well for immediate remission.
I advise you to consult a dermatologist for diagnosis and treatment. It may be necessory to have a culture and sensitivity of the discharge from the swelling.
Wishing for a quick and complete recovery.
Best regards.
