Thanks for posting on HCM,

From your description, based on the location of the abdominal colic (colicky abdominal pain of the epigastrium or hypochondrium) there are a series of causes for that including but not excluded to biliary diseases (bile obstruction, bile stone etc), peptic ulcer diseases or gastritis, to a lesser extend pancreatitic diseases. These causes are hardly due to bacteria (so antibiotics would not be helpful). Those specific diseases will require specific treatments.
I will advise that you consult your daughter's doctor or a gastroenterologist so they can further examine and request specific laboratory and imagery tests/ultrasound. After which appropriate treatment will follow.

Hope this helps
