Arms and Legs

If the child refuses to use an arm or leg completely, you should contact your physician.  If the child is limping without much pain, they should stay around the house with as little activity as possible.  If the limp is not gone in 24 to 48 hours, contact your physician.  A child should never be lifted by an arm or leg.

If the child suddenly begins falling a lot when he/she hasn’t in the past or you notice swelling, redness or pain in the joint you should contact your physician.
