Small child, breastfed, allergic to diary and soy, swelling in chest in LUQ, LLQ. Cure for symptoms?

My daughter is 14 weeks old, breast fed, allergic to dairy & soy, no other known health problems. She has developed swelling to the LUQ and LLQ of her chest . It is CTA. At first I thought it was transfer of maternal hormones but because it is also LLQ I do not believe so. It is characteristic of edema and is nonpitting.

Hi mom
Your daughter's description of two separate swellings in left side of chest does not seem to fit in any common illness.
In view of her young age & unusual presentation please get her checked by a pediatrician who can possibly think of possible explainations after complete physical check & tests if required.
In the absence of detailed description guess work is unlikely to help.
