Do you have a pic?
Is it tender? like an infection?

It is an infection of the parotid gland in the cheek.
This does require antibiotics right away.
She should get to a local ER or urgent care.
In the meantime, ibuprofen will help with pain and sucking on a lemon drop or cough drop will help to draw out the infection
