Without a photo provided it's difficult to determine what has cause the lump, It sounds like you may have had a filler injected instead of Botox. Advise your medical provider for further assistance to this issue

Your description of the treatment sounds suspiciously like filler injections as the areas that you indicate are common areas for filler and not as commonly treated with Botox. Botox leaving lumps would be very unusual. Fillers leaving lumps, particularly in the area under the lower eyelid is not an uncommon occurrence since the skin there is very thin and the area requires very careful injection technique.

I suggest that you speak to your doctor and find out what was injected and what can be done about the lumpiness.

  1. Your response to Botox is quite unusual.
  2. It sounds more like a filler injection than a Botox injection. 
  3. Return to the doctor who treated you to be checked and to be sure exactly what you were given. Best wishes.
