Axolotl jumping out of the water

Hello everyone. So a few days ago I found my axolotl on the floor (even though I have a cover, she somehow managed to jump). Thankfully she was still alive when I found her and in a relatively good condition. She had some blisters and a small part of her skin was peeling off. I noticed that she doesn’t move a lot and she hasn’t eaten the past two days, even though she looks better compared to the first day. I checked my water parameters and temp and everything’s normal. I do 30% daily water changes in her tank and I’ve used some almond leaves as well. I don’t know what else to do and I’m worried. I would really appreciate any ideas you may have. Thank you in advance!

Hello
She will probably recover.
Now, for the future, it's important to find out why she jumped out of the tank.
If your water is fine, then try to suppress other stress sources, like movements near the tank, vibrations,...
