Pediatrician 's  Response

Thank you for your query.

The description provided by you suggests that your daughter has either of the following:
1. Insect bite
2. Blunt injury
Though it is difficult to say what it is without seeing it I suggest that you can wait for a day or two and see how it progresses. In case it subsides well and good otherwise it shall be better to get her examined by a doctor. In the interim you can give her paracetamol/acetamenophen 7.5-10 ml. three to four times a day along with warm fomentation to reduce the pain.

I hope I have answered your query to your satisfaction.

Wishing your daughter a speedy recovery.
