Post shingles swelling


Q: I am 27, I had shingles 1.5 months ago, on my right side if face as a result swollen right side of face including my lower eye lid. Last weekend I thought I have recovered completely so I had drinks on a farewell and woke up next day with same sort of pain on my lower eye lid and with increase in swelling. Now it's day 5 and swelling is still there and I have been to doctors they said, it's not a reoccurance but they don't tell why I have got this swelling again? and roughly how long it will take me to completely recover from this pain and swelling??

Symptoms:  nerve pain and swelling
