Thank you for your question,
It seems your requested expert is not on line.
I’mCustomerand I’ll try to help you.
There can be an inflammation of joint.
Inflammation of tendon or tenosynovitis is also possible if she uses her wrist more often.
You can give her antiinflammatory analgesics like motrin or naproxen, if there is no other contraindication.
Please give those after food to avoid irritation of stomach.
Warm application can also be soothing.
She needs to keep the wrist at rest as much as possible.
If you do notice any improvement or if she develops, redness, swelling, increased temperature, please get her an examination by doctor.
I hope this information helps.
If there’s anything else I can do, please let me know.
