Thanks for your query on HealthCareMagic.

As there is no swelling or redness over the area under description, it appears that your daughter may have hurt herself in the region. It is advisable to apply cold compresses for the first day and thereafter hot compresses.

In case the pain increases or some other signs appear then an examination by the doctor is warranted.

Wishing your daughter a speedy recovery.
