Need more info: Where is the infection? Does the swelling interfere with breathing? What is his temperature? Is he eating and drinking? If any of these things are not in good order you may take your son to the casualty room of a nearby hospital, in case you can not get hold of your doctor. Make sure he drinks enough water so that his urine is mostly colorless, You may give him acetaminophen for fever.
