Thank you for your question.
I am Dr. Su S. and I will try my best to help you.

Since when is she limping?

Did she have any trauma, fall?

She hasn't fell
Expert:  Dr. Su S. replied 1 year ago.

Thank you for the input.

There can be different causes.

There can be a foot or ligament strain.

Arthritis can occur in children.

I would advise to get an examination by doctor.

She needs to keep the foot at rest.

Motrin can be taken.

Warm application can be soothing.

I hope this information will be helpful.

But she has no pain and she only 16 month
Expert:  Dr. Su S. replied 1 year ago.

As you did not mention the age earlier, I thought she is older.

She needs an examination in person.

Any neurological issue causing weakness needs to be ruled out as there is no pain.

What can do for mean time for the limping on 16 month old I have a appointment on Tuesday
Expert:  Dr. Su S. replied 1 year ago.

I would advise to take her to an urgent care for at least an examination.

Without knowing the precise cause, you can not do more than what I suggested in my first answer.
