In brief: Hematoma

You have a subperiosteal hematoma.
This is a bleed under the covering of the bone (called periosteum). It may be tender for another 6-8 weeks. I would also consider a fracture as a possibility. If their is any misplacement of the bony structures of her face.

In brief: Head trauma

If this is the only residual i would wait a few more weeks and this should show signs of lessening and clearing.
If not then it would be wise to see your family doctor for any further care.
