Kid with broken big toe

by Gooa
(Abu dhabi)

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.


Answer:

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.

Thanks for sharing it. If something like this happened then you must be worried enough for your kid and should go to the hospital as soon as possible because the toe of kids are not that much strong, may be there something serious.
