What is the treatment if got hurt in ankle and foot ?

My one year old son hurt his ankle/foot a week ago. He has been limping, running low frase fevers, it is slightly swollen and warm to the touch. X rays came back normal and Thelabs a week ago showing an elevated wbc, esr, and crp. He is continuing these symptoms and am worried about what to do?

Hello,

His blood lab tests and clinical symptoms are suggestive of local infection. For this reason, I would recommend starting an antibiotic coupled with Ibuprofen for inflammation. Repeating his blood lab tests after a week may be needed.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
Dr Ilir Sharka, Cardiologist

Hi, I slipped on a wet floor about 3 weeks ago and thought I sprained my ankle slightly but I now see a red swollen circle in the middle of my top foot. I also have a couple of bumps (look like little knots) running down from my big toe down top of foot. It aches a bit when I am lying down in bed and I wake up with the ache in the morning. Once I get moving it doesn t ache as much but the top of my foot is burning. If I roll it it hurts on the inside of my foot near the ankle. I don t have a problem walking but I can feel that it is not quite right. Do you think I have break or a fracture? Thanks

I hit the front of my ankle really hard at a playground. I was sliding across one of the thugs and my legs swung into the platform on the other side. I got immediate pain and it turned red. I got home and it was swollen and bruised slightly. When I flexed my foot back it hurt and in some positions of my foot it hurts. I can walk on it fine. I have an ankle brave on it and iced it the night it happened because I couldn t get ice on it right away

I broke my ankle two weeks ago and I was rocking my foot back and forth on the floor on my toes as i was standing with my crutches and I felt a really light crack where the break is. It doesnt hurt at all and its not swelling under the cast or anything, but it is concerning me because I am not sure that there is anything there to crack.
