    can you post a pic?

    could she be injured from a bump or fall?
    or does it look like the swelling is causing the displacement?
    could it be a tumor?

    you might consider a vet.

    try warm compresses and aspirin..1 (81mg) tablet in 1 quart of water...

    if sinus infection...


    also give the Tylan 50 injectable or erythromycin (gallimycin)..or Penicillin in a pinch.
