1 doctor agrees

In brief: Depends

If the puffiness is red and tender to touch, you should take her in.
If it's just puffy and she doesn't have any other symptoms i would just monitor for fevers or other signs of illness.

In brief: Try antihistamine

It may be allergy related.
Try Claritin (loratadine) over the counter daily. If not better in a week or so, check with doctor. If any vision changes or discharge from the eyes, check with the doctor sooner.
