Hi,
Since trauma has bizarre presentation you need at least basic investigations. There may be a small injury in lumbosacral spine or right side of hip, which needs to be ruled out. Your description does not seem to be benign. You should consult an orthopedic surgeon, get examined clinically. Till then you can take rest and pain killers.

Let me know if I can assist you further.

It has be 15 days since first noticiing the rash...and he has some blood in his urine once a day for 3 days....in the afternoon. Can the virus be a cause of the blood?
