Welcome to HCM.

Cyst on the inside of the lip, usually will resolve of it's own and will not require any treatment.
If it persists for more than 2 weeks or becomes painful you need to consult a dental surgeon to examine it and treat it if necessary.
Dental caries also needs to be excluded. Get her to wash her mouth regularly with a good mouth wash such as LISTERINE, which is available in all medical shops.

Wishing your daughter all the best.
