Brief Answer:
She needs an antibiotics!

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

She needs an antibiotics else it will become complicated. This will lead to full blown infection affecting the kidneys and the rest of the body with fever, aches, etc. Though she has no insurance, she must go to the hospital. Failure to do so will lead to complications and more bills to save her life.

I hope this helps and U wish her well. Feel free to follow up with me if need be.
