What causes a back shoulder pain with swelling?

My 18 year old daughter was recently treated for strep with a Z pac. Two days later she began to feel a pain in her back (right above bra strap next to her shoulder blade) and she describes it as feeling like a bruise, and says she can feel it from inside. I can't feel it from outside other than possibly a small swelling. Any ideas or suggestion on what type of doctor to go see? Thanks.

Hi,Thanks for your query. After going through your query I came to know that your daughter is having backache.She feel like it from inside .You should consult General Physical for it. Analgesic such as diclofenac will be helpful in pain relief. You can discuss with your treating Doctor about it. I do hope that you have found something helpful. If you have additional questions or follow up queries then please do not hesitate in writing to us. I will be happy to answer your queries. Wishing you good health. Take care.
