Hi.
Thanks for your query for your friend in Tasmania.
It looks that pain medication or something else caused the said problem.

Please ask her the following:
Stop the pain medications of any sort.
Take an antihistamine.
May need oral steroids: needs a prescription.
Also ask for any fever or infection in oral cavity or near the swollen area.

These may help to resolve her problem.I hope this answer helps your friend.
