      It sounds like part of the brace is rubbing against the skin causing
      the blisters. It might be that her brace has gotten loose and was
      able to rub against her skin. If it is always in one certain spot
      you might ask them to pad that part of the brace, we have had to do
      this with Josh's braces a couple of times. Most of the time the
      brace was coming loose because the velcro was getting old and not
      holding as good. They just replaced the velcro on the brace then.
      Hope that helps.
