Have headache and swollen injured area. Had a fall earlier. The pain continues. What to do?

My daughter fell on Saturday (3) days ago flat onto her face (eye and top outer edge of eyebrow and top of cheek). It was red and mildly swollen that day and continues to complain of pain in her head on and off throughout the day (she says every few minutes) even at rest. The pain is localized to the area above where she was struck (temple) and across her forehead. What should we do?

It seems that due to fall there might be having soft tissue injury on cheek and eyebrow giving rise to infection, cellulitis and swelling.
Consult your doctor.
With one course of antibiotic and anti-inflammatory medicines she will be alright.
Ok and take care.
