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
Pediatrician: Dr. Su S., Pediatrician replied 2 years 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.

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.

But she has no pain and she only 16 month
Pediatrician: Dr. Su S., Pediatrician replied 2 years 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
Pediatrician: Dr. Su S., Pediatrician replied 2 years 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.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
