hi my son is 7 years old, yesterday he went to the pool and when he came home he had pain on his leg its right be side his privet, i haven't send him to the Dr but when he walks he has pain and siting and standing up.

Hello Suzana,
I don't normally recommend rushing off to the doctor or chiropractor but in this instance it is important. If he has a Perthe's hip developing, and he's back in the right age group and sex, then he MUST get the weight off that leg immediately.

Type Perthes into the Search this site at C-H. It's a serious condition and must be ruled out. He probably doesn't have it, but....
