Authentication of a story

Q: I heard a story about a Sahaabiyah named Aslamiya. She was described as a person with medical knowledge learnt from her father and when she asked Nabi (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) if it was permissible for her to treat those in need, Nabi (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) said that it was indeed permissible. It was also stated that she trained a number of other women to do the same. I would just like to verify the authenticity of this story.

A: We have not come across this. Even if this is correct this was done like how a woman will teach other women a recipe in the confines of the home.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
