See your doctor
Botox and Facial Swelling
The generalized systemic reaction you are describing with fever and redness can be quite serious. Although it is unlikely that one month later it could be caused by your injections, I would return immediately to your dermatologist for examination to see what the cause of your reaction is. Please keep me posted.
