Kid with broken big toe
My dd broke her right big toe couple of days back. The podiatrist reduced it and buddy taped it and they gave her a ski boot to wear. Today i saw a slight purple blue bruise under the toe below the buddy tape. It doesn't hurt much. Is this normal or should i be worried. Also its hard for her to keep still so is it ok if she wears the ski boot when she is sleeping also.
Bruising is normal, just make sure the taping is not too tight, otherwise, re-taping may be needed to prevent circulation restriction.
You do not need to sleep with the boot. It is really designed to relieve pressure when walking.
