I am so sorry that Bryn  is not feeling well. If this swelling was right under his eye, then this is most likely caused by an abscessed tooth. This infection is at the roots of the tooth in the upper arcade and this may have ruptured within his mouth and released the infection to the outside. This will return until this infected root is removed. It is best to have your veterinarian examine Bryn and perform this dental procedure to help Bryn past this.

Does that make sense to you?
