A few days ago a big infection formed on my

Patient : A few days ago a big infection formed on my head so I went to the doctor who squeezed a lot of blood and puss out of it which was extremely painful he then gave me antibiotics which which said I must take them three times a day, so last night I took one as well as a pain killed which was not prescribed and this morning when I woke up my face was all puffy and quite numb. I also currently have a very bad cold but I haven't taken any sort of medicine for it. Is this an allergic reaction? If so what should I do?
Symptoms:  Puffy face, cold
