Why my daughter's feet are dry and flaky? (In the shinbone area). Is it some kind of food allergy symptoms or what? And what should I do?

I have a broken shinbone it hurts to elevate my leg but it's really swollen. My orthopedic said he wanted it elevated but it hurts worse when I do. I'm almost 6 month pregnant so the swelling worries me. Any tips or ideas?

When a leg gets really swollen it can cause a compartment symdrome in which the pressure from the swelling is greater than the pressure of the arterial inflow and in that case the pain and the condition would be worse with elevation. ...Read more
