Prominent Bone In The Child’s Feet?
Hi I want to ask .. My child is 5 years old, I pay attention to the shape of the soles of his feet, why is there a strange part protruding on the outside edge of his foot both the left and right feet … But there are no complaints of pain
Hello Sany Wen, thank you for asking yes on HealthReplies.com.
Seeing the complaints that you submit above, there are several circumstances that might cause such complaints, such as:
Normal variations in foot shape
The addition of certain bones that make up the sole of the foot
Abnormalities of the sole of the foot
Abnormalities in growth of bones forming the sole of the foot
To find out whether your child's feet are a normal condition or not, you should consult this matter further with a pediatrician to get a direct examination. If there is indeed an abnormality in the shape of your child's feet, the doctor may refer your child for further therapy by an orthopedic specialist, but please note that not all possibilities that can cause this will always lead to therapy with operative methods.
In the meantime, if there are no complaints felt by your child, it is advisable to keep doing their activities as usual. Also avoid using footwear (both shoes and sandals) that are too tight for your child, because they can interfere with bone growth and shape of the foot itself.
I hope this helps.
