Thanks for writing your query.

After reading your post, it seems that the swelling is due to inflammation as a result of mosquito bite.

You should get her examined by her doctor.

She can be given anti-inflammatory medicines and antibiotic to cure the cellulitis, if present.

Swelling in the forehead and near the eyes take a longer time to disappear due to
presence of loose tissue in the skin in that area.

I hope this is helpful to you.
If you have any further query, I will be happy to help.
