Red, spotty, swollen face my son woke up with his eye swollen with bright red bumps that are very small. He also had those small, red bumps all around his mouth and chin. I gave him a dose of benedryl allergy this morning and the swelling around his eye

In brief: Doctor visit

Would really be a good idea just to have the doctor look at the little guy to make sure it isn't an infection.

In brief: Any

Any time there is an injury or problem with the eye, the best course of action is to call the child's doctor. As a general rule, we are very careful with eyes.
Without examining him, it is difficult to tell whether the cause is allergy, infection (viral or bacterial) or injury. Since they all require different treatments, the safest thing to do is call his doctor.
