3-year-old Child Exposed To Heavy Objects Hit In The Abdomen And Chest?
3-year-old child affected by a collision in the stomach and chest area
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. It is clear that young children have more vulnerable bodies than adults. Besides that, an adult can be better prepared or have reflexes to harden the body by contracting muscles when he knows that he might be bumped or hit by something. Small children are not like that, so when he is hit or hit, many things can happen, ranging from ordinary bruises to broken bones.
In your question, we do not know much important information, such as where in the body the impact was hit, in what form the impact was, how heavy the object was, and how was the child's condition after being struck down. This is very important because the handling will depend on the conditions.
If you are confused, you should just check your child to see a general practitioner first to see what potential injuries he has and how severe. Your doctor will look at it thoroughly and ask you in more detail about what happened. The doctor may also do an x-ray examination to see the potential for fractures.
Meanwhile, compress the painful part with a cold compress, and don't delay treatment to the doctor. So, hopefully answering your question.
