Thanks for the query
Left upper chest pain is not because of gastritis. It will not help. It could be a muscle catch or maybe she has hurt herself somewhere. Please take her to the pediatrician tomorrow and get her examined. For now u can give her brufen syrup instead and see if the pain comes down
