Hello and thanks for trusting me to help you. I am a board certified consultant with over 30 years of experience.
I understand your concern.

Yes,you can give her Benadryl and Motrin.

Also continue cool compresses on affected eye.

Try OTC Zaditor eye drops.

And she should avoid rubbing as much as possible.

She can use cotton cloth and gentle press on her eye if she feels irritation.

If symptoms'll not improve then see doctor for eye examination for further evaluation and management.

Most likely she'll be fine.
