Have Pediatric Questions? Ask a Pediatrician.
Greetings,Thank you for your question.I am Dr. Su S. and I will try my best to help you.
Since when is it swollen?
How is color/ temperature of the foot?
Was it examined by doctor?
Is she able to walk on it?
Is there any injured open site?
Thank you for the input.The swelling is likely due to an inflammation or infection.In case of inflammation from a trauma, it would gradually become less day by day.If it is remaining the same or increasing, an infection needs to be ruled out.In penetrating injuries the infection can occur in deeper tissue.In that case she will need antibiotic.I would advise to get her an examination by doctor.You have tried the right things.She needs to keep the foot elevated as much time as possible.Ibuprofen can be continued.I hope this information will be helpful.If you have any query, please feel free to ask.If you are happy with my answer please click on the Excellent/Good rating. Wish her healthy life.Regards.
