You might have some insect bite on the part and after that there is infection taken place leading to induration,swelling and pain in surrounding area i.e. eye,cheek and upper lip.
Take one course of antibiotic,anti histaminic and anti inflammatory medicine after consulting of your doctor.
O K and bye.take care.

Pediatrician Dr. Suryakanta Baraha's  Response
Without examination confirmation of a diagnosis is tough but it can be eczema. Wash the areas several times with fresh water. Do not use any cosmetic products at the sites.You can apply some calamine lotion at the rash as it will help in soothing the skin.Symptoms can be exacerbated by dryness of the skin. Use good quality moisturizers to prevent moisture loss from the skin. anthistaminics like cetrizine may be helpful for itching.If still the symptoms do not improve then pls get a clinical examination done by a dermatologist. take care
