The Baby’s Hand Hurts Suddenly?
Afternoon, I want to ask. My niece’s right hand hurts, and that suddenly, she is playing suddenly complaining of pain in her right hand. If the pain has recurred, he will not use his right hand for any activity, my nephew is only 14 months old. his hand aches like to come suddenly, guess why?
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Pain in the child's arms or hands can be caused by several possibilities:
injury to bones, muscles, or joints due to collisions (for example due to falls)
nursemaid's elbow, which is a ligament in the hand that is shifted and squeezed between the bones or joints because of the way to lift the child improperly (usually because parents pull the child's hand when holding, swinging the child in his hand, etc.)
juvenile rheumatoid arthritis, which is inflammation of the joints that occurs in children
If indeed the child does not seem to be able to use his hands properly, you should advise his parents to take their child to the pediatrician immediately. The child's hand must be examined directly to ensure that the diagnosis can be treated appropriately.
For now, ask the parents or whoever is caring for the child not to pull the child's hand when he wants to carry it or swing the child by holding his hand up. This is to prevent the possibility of further injury to the child's hand.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
