hipdysplasia
Good morning!
My 2yr old son was born with hipdyspasia. He''s been monitored by his orthopeadic surgeon, the last check up was in nov. last which then he was happy with the improvement and said to only go back this yr nov. Since yesterday, he''s been limping exactly the leg with the problem and cries when i touch his foot. The creche said he did not get hurt at creche. Could the cold weather cause some uncomfortableness in the hip and should i rather take him to his doc?

you should definitely take him to the doc and have an X-ray to see if anything has gone wrong with that hip
