Thanks for query,
Your daughter has allergy due to something falling in her eye or due to some internal allergy.
due to allergy there is marked oedema in sclera causing swelling.
Put some anti allergy eye drops and some anti histamines like cetrizine instead of Benadryl after taking advice from your doctor.
Ok and bye.
