Question: Hello Doctor,
Greetings!!

My kid who is 19 months old now is suffering from mild pain in right leg ankle, he is not able to walk properly due to mild pain and we observed slight swelling on ankle.
He did not fall or jump from any high place, We have been observing that he is walking slowly since 2 days but today he is walking more slower due to pain.

Kindly suggest some solution.

Brief Answer:
Paracetamol or acetaminophen should help in bringing down the pain.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.

I have gone carefully through your query and understand your concerns. I would insist you to give Sumol Drops (paracetamol) to the child. It will help in relieving the pain. Also apply cold compress (you may alternate it with hot compress). The pain should resolve in a day or two. If it does not, it would be a good idea to visit a doctor and to get the region evaluated.

If you provide the body weight of the child I would be able to suggest the appropriate dose for the child.

Let me know if I could help further.

Regards

Thank you Doctor for quick and detailed response!!.

My kid is around 12KGs now.

He has mild pain in swelling area only, Is Sumol Drops(paracetamol) to be given orally?.

Could you please suggest any ointment or lotion to apply on the swelling area?.

We would like to follow some primary medication before visiting a doctor.

Thanks again for your kind response!!

I was circumcised this morning and I'm terrified of going to bed. Is there anything I can do to take the edge off the pain?I've taken some painkillers (2x50mg paracetamol, 40mg ibuprofen and some codeine phosphate tablets) and read about wearing tighter, more supportive bedclothes.For further information, I just took the dressing off from around my penis and there was a fair bit of blood from near one of the stitches. Half an hour or so with some tissue paper and reasonable pressure has stopped the flow, but I worry that if (or, more likely, when) I get an erection in my sleep, it might start to bleed again.
