Hello there,

If your child has been limping and is in severe pain, it can further aggravate his problem if he continues his activities. So until a diagnosis is made, we would advice bed rest for your child. Ask him specifically where it hurts. A 3 year old is susceptible to external injuries and it is likely he could have met with a trauma. Carefully examine the soles of his feet for any external injury. You have mentioned an abnormal blood report. Can you be more specific about the findings. So kindly revert back with the blood report.

Take care.
