I felt fine despite pain so I slept it off for a few hours but woke up and couldn't open my eye because it was too swollen- knot also got bigger. I know the procedure for this like icing and stuff but is there any way to keep it from swelling even more and how worse might this get? And is there anyway to decrease the swelling so that I can open my eye? Thanks
