Q.

could this be polio

My daughter just 18 months on the 1st of this month. And I was planning to rake her for the 18 months immunization next week. But today she started doing something weird, she dregs her right leg when she walks and u don''t think this is normal. Could there be an underlining problem here? should I rush her to the doctor, did I take too long to get her immunized?
and I haven''t missed any of her immunizations.

You definitely need to take your child to a doctor ASAP.Your little girl has been immunised against polio so it is very unlikely that she has polio.There are other possible causes of her symptoms. Please take her to an after hours paediatric clinic.
