What causes swelling in the eyelid?

Hi, I woke up 2 days ago with a swollen eye lid. Within 24 hours it swelled to a grotesque size and today the swelling traveled into my upper cheek a little as well. Extremely tender to the touch...face felt hot but no temperature..achy body muscles and just felt off Today I think I can see at least one tiny black spot in center of eyelid where it s most tender..wondering now if it s a spider bite?
