Use warm water and soap to gently wash it and cream to moisturize the skin.</p> <h3>It is normal for your child to limp, walk with the foot turned out and protect the leg</h3> <p>When the cast is off, your child may limp, walk with the foot turned out and protect the leg. This is normal and may last for several months. This is because the muscles are weak and the joints are stiff. With more activity, your child will walk as well as before. </p> <h3>Avoid contact sports</h3> <p>Your child should avoid high-impact, contact sports for a minimum of four to six weeks after removing the cast. Your child will gradually gain confidence in the leg and will return to regular activities. </p> <p>If you have any concerns, contact your family doctor or the advanced practice nurse (APN) at the fracture clinic.</p><h2>Your child may need a cast</h2> <p>Whether your child needs a cast or not depends on the location and nature of the fracture.

When taking off the cast, carefully cut up the flannel side of the cast with scissors to remove it. </p> <p>Other types of casts will need to be removed by the orthopaedic technicians.</p><img alt="" src="https://assets.aboutkidshealth.ca/AKHAssets/lower_leg_fracture.jpg" style="BORDER:0px solid;" />https://assets.aboutkidshealth.ca/AKHAssets/lower_leg_fracture.jpglowerlegfracture
