But these are baseline recommendations and may change dependent on the clinical examination and the radiographic evaluation as well
My daughter had a fracture in her pinkie finger. The splint was just removed and it's swollen. What can we do?
One, it could be a toxic synovitis if associated with hip pain on examination or knee pain on examination.
The other more serious is that he could have a septic joint from the infection if it is not viral, as it might be based upon the fact that he was placed on an antibiotic.
He needs to be seen ASAP.
