    Daughter's arm

    My three year old daughter was running in the house last night and fell on her left arm. There was a lot of crying and she didn't want to move it. We put an ice pack on her inner elbow and then I wrapped it with an ace bandage and made a sling with a bandana. This morning she is still complaining about pain and crys out if I try to touch her arm or move it. She does have flushed cheeks this morning and feels a little warm to the touch but not hot. Is this something that should be checked out ot keep wrapped?

    Elbow fractures can be kind of a big deal in kids, and from your description, she may well have one. Of course I cannot possibly make a definite diagnosis, but you really ought to have her checked out, now. This warrants a trip to a local ER or urgent care facility that can do x-rays. Best, if possible, to go to a peds-only facility where they'll know how to use minimal radiation and read the film correctly.

    Best of luck-
