Why does my face look swollen and a bit 'jowly'?

I have had a cold followed by that vague winter illness where you generally feel unhealthy and tired - possibly a virus? Can your 'glands' swell with this? Would this be a possible cause?

(I am hoping it/they will deflate and it's not just a case of too much chocolate.)

glands definiteley can swell up when ill...

water retention can alsogive one that swollen look...

(with me it tends to be chocolate though grin )
