The Baby’s Hand Is Sprained?
Good night doctor nAbout 7pm I was playing with my nephew nWhen I carried him his hand / finger bumped against the bed causing a sound. I am afraid that my nephew’s hand / finger will be broken or sprained, right? Is that a danger? After that incident my nephew was crying, didn’t it stop? What actions should I take to treat it? nDo you want to be taken to a massage therapist or to the hospital?
Hello Agnes, Thank you for the question.
The impact of a hitting finger depends on how strong the impact is. This impact can cause injury, fracture of the bone, fracture, bruise, or injury to the muscles / tendons / ligaments. This impact can cause swelling, pain, appearance of bent fingers, or immovability. To make sure further, you should take your nephew to the doctor. The doctor will need to carry out further examinations on your nephew's fingers and if necessary, will order X-rays to confirm the cause. From this X-ray it can be seen whether your nephew's bones are damaged or not. The next treatment will be determined according to the doctor's examination. Alternative treatment is often an option, but you have to be careful because massage can aggravate the sufferer's condition and if a fracture or fracture occurs, alternative medicine cannot treat it.
You can apply an ice pack to the injured area for 15 minutes then repeat. Give paracetamol in accordance with the dosage stated on the medicine package if your niece still looks sick.
Hope this information is helpful.
