Why is baby unresponsive to tickling or any other sensations?

Hi doctor, my baby is 14 months old. Three days ago his left leg started to be unresponsive to everything that I did to his leg like tickling him, pinching him ... He is not acting like he is in pain at all, but there is no movement or tightening in his leg muscles. He doesn t have fever . What can he possibly have? Thank you.

Weakness in a single limb without fever is most commonly occur following any traumatic injection in thigh. Weakness may be of neurological or muscular origin secondary to poliomyelitis, compression of the nerve or some other viral infection. I would suggest you to consult your physician immediately for proper clinical evaluation and management accordingly.
