What could cause eyebrow pain and swelling?
If one eyebrow is painful and swollen, it could be a local infection, sinus disease, or shingles. If both sides are involved, allergy, thyroid disease, infection, seborrhea, rosacea, and sinus disorders are common causes. You should see an Eye M.D. who can examine you and make a diagnosis.
