The Thumb Of The Child’s Bent Hand?
Good morning doctor
Good morning Budi, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. The condition of the bent finger can occur due to several possibilities, including structural abnormalities, such as fractures, bone growth abnormalities, ligamentous disorders or other supporting limb structures. In addition, it could also be due to nerve disorders associated with the hands, for example due to the difficult delivery process so that the baby's nerves are squeezed.
In dealing with this condition, unfortunately it can not be treated only with over-the-counter medicines or fruits, but must be thoroughly examined first by a specialist, then an action that can be in the form of therapy or maybe surgery. Our advice, check your child at the pediatrician first to be clear about where the other location. Then the child's doctor will suggest what treatment is most appropriate for your child, including referring him to a bone doctor or neurologist.
Meanwhile, there is no need to give medication, therapy or force the movement of his hands, just breastfeed him and provide nutrition as usual, keep away from cigarette smoke and sick people, and immediately consult a doctor. So, hopefully answering your question.
