Hi there. My name is ***** ***** I'm happy to help you with your question today. Just like an in person consult, I have a couple questions of my own to ensure I give you the best advice possible...

Did it bleed when she reopened it?

How did she open it?

Have you noticed any discharge or swelling to the area?

Is she eating/drinking normally?
