The Cause Of The Child’s Feet Hurt?
my child is 3 years old, suddenly his feet hurt, even though there is nothing strange / injured on the sole of his foot, I guess what is the cause huh? I have to consult with a specialist doctor about the problem of my child’s feet, please explain, thank you.
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Children aged 3 years often cannot explain in detail if they feel a complaint. Therefore, as a parent, you must be smart to understand your child's language.
The pain in the soles of the feet raised by a child does not always show the truth. It could also, this pain he used to describe the sensation of itching, tingling, or other discomfort. Although indeed, this pain can also indicate an illness, such as skin sores on the soles of his feet, after experiencing an injury (for example bumping or stepping on something hard), muscle cramps, skin inflammation of the soles of the feet (such as due to infection, insect bites, eyelets) , arthritis, plantar fasciitis, and so on.
Need to be clarified beforehand, have you tried pressing the soles of your child's feet? Does your child look in pain or cry strong when the sole of the foot is pressed? Does your child appear limp when walking? Does the sole of the foot appear reddish, swollen, sore, thickening, or other complaints?
To be more objective, you should check your child to a doctor or pediatrician, right? With a direct examination, often the doctor is able to identify the cause of the pain he experienced. For now, it's best not to give your child any medication. Safer, resolve complaints with the following steps:
Ask your child to rest more, don't walk too much or run around
Warm compresses on the soles of painful children
Do not carelessly massage or massage the legs of a painful child
Give children footwear that are clean, padded, flat (not entitled), and fit the size of their feet
Don't let children play in a dirty environment with bare feet
Always keep the child's foot area clean
Hope this helps ...
