It seems that due to hard kicking on the breast might have caused soft tissues injury to breast, leading to induration and some infection as well.
She requires one course of antibiotic and anti-inflammatory medicine course after consulting your doctor.
Try to start course as soon as possible other wise there is a chance to have abscess formation.
Apply ice pack 2-3 times a day.
Ok and take care.
