Q.

tumor?

my 2year child developed a small prick-like wound under the big toe. a week later, a tumor developed on her thigh just below the abdomen. it was stiff until about a month latter it broke and a huge wound came up. this wound has not healed upto now despite applying medication. suprisingly, it doesn' t appear painful to the child despite being open for two months now. what could this be?

This is a lymph node which has developed into an abscess following your daughter's infection on her toe. Have you taken her to see a doctor? She needs to be seen and treated with the correct antibiotic and other medication.
