The swelling did not go down with allergic reaction medications (Dexamethasone and diphenhydramine).

The next step was to take radiographs of the nose and skull to see if perhaps a tumor or foreign body was in the nasal area causing the swelling. Sometimes tumors "quietly" grow, then erupt with infection.
