Our expert says:
Your symptoms are really atypical. Sinusitis will cause moderate facial swelling and puffiness of the eyes. Cellulitis will cause severe pain, fever and redness of the skin that is painful to the touch.
Itching as a precursor to the swelling is a sign that you might be suffering from a contact dermatitis. I therefore, suggest that you consult a dermatologist when your symptoms occur. You can ask your pharmacist for Celestamine tablets to take when your symptoms appear. If it is an allergic reaction, the Celestamine tablets will bring immediate relief.
