You can apply sterile gauze over the area.
Please tell her not to bend which can increase pressure & leakage.

te swellingand bloating does it cause pain cause she says everywhere she is swollen it hurts
Swelling can cause pain from pressure on the tissues, skin irritation, friction & inflammation.
