Q.

2 year old with a slight limp

hi, my 2 year old daughter has had a very mild limp for the last 2 days. She has a slight cough as well and I am giving her bisolvon for that (not a very bad cough at all, and doesnt keep her up at night, she only coughs a few times a day and she has an occasionally runny nose). Do you think I should take her to my paed to get the limp looked at / x rays ? Is it likely to be anything serious or should I just wait a day or so to see if it resovles ?

I am concerned about your little daughter's sudden limp. You do need to find out why she is limping.She must be seen by a doctor, preferably by her paediatrician.
