In brief: Eyebrow swollen

When tissues are hurt, by trauma, infection or other causes, they swell, redden and pain.
That is the body's natural first defense to being injured and is called inflammation. An ice pack over the injured area is a good idea at this point to reduce the swelling. If there was no loss of consciousness, break in skin, normal gait, no confusion, it is probably OK to use local ice and Acetaminophen
