Thank you for your query
The foreign body or glass piece you removed is the most plausible cause for your child's reluctance in walking. However a bit of it may still be inside. You should consult a pediatric surgeon for the same. We may need to get a few X-rays too before commenting on the cause of this complaint. The common causes would include trauma, hematoma (collection of blood), Vitamin D or calcium deficiency, arthritis, an abscess or collection of pus in the psoas muscle (muscle in the flank). Your consultant will be able to rule out this
Hope that helps
God bless you

Hi ,
Thank you for your query.
You are lucky to have pulled out a piece of glass from a small child.
Put some antibiotic cream over the area and give her some paracetamol.Give her some rest to her feet.
Consult your doctor if the problem persists.
If you have any further queries you are free to consult me.
Hope this answers your query.
Wishing a speedy recovery.
Have a nice day.
