In brief: Bug bite, infection

See your doctor if it doesn't resolve by tomorrow.
An infection can spread into the actual orbital capsule of the eye. In the meantime, put a warm compress on the area of puffiness. Is it itchy, painful, or is there a discharge? These are things your doctor will need to know.
