Thanks for your query. Fracture
of thumb needs definitely to be shown to an orthopedician. Usually spica cast will be applied if fracture i confirmed and it needs to be worn for atleast four to six weeks. In compartment syndrome
, the pain becomes excruciating as swelling increases. Just show him to your doctor if the crying due to pain increases and pain on touching the swelling increases. Don't worry she will be fine.
