Swelling can be a sign of long-term inflammation and tissue reactivity. When long-term exposure to environmental allergies occurs, the vessels may become filled with inflammatory markers. Such inflammatory markers single out the vessels to become more permeable and increase the capacity of the body to accumulate fluid in the area. Fluid buildup is not only inconvenient when it manifests as eye, sinus, and nasal swelling, but it can also prevent the immune system from functioning correctly. In addition, as it promotes stagnation and less efficient blood flow, swollen tissues may become more susceptible to further inflammation and pathogens.
