  • use ice on it, giver her tylenol or motrin (if you have any of the kind not under recall). See if that helps, if not call the doc on Monday.

  • I'd ice it and give Motrin to reduce inflammation and reduce pain.. If it continues you could see your doctor.

  • Probably growing pains or she slept on it funny. Ice it and give her Motrin. If it continues on Monday, call the doctor and have her checked out.
