Your descriptions the presence of an abscess. Seeing an endodontist  is advised.

She clearly has an infection.  
I would suggest you take her to the dentist to examine the area.  
He will be able to give your daughter a prescription for some antibiotics to clear up any infection that is left.

Make sure that she still cleans her teeth and practises good oral hygiene. A gargle with salty water may help.

Best wishes.
