A Lump Appears Next To The Area Of the Immunization Injection Site?
MorningrnI’ve been immunized and my 3 month old child has a lump, but the lump is next to the injection, is that normal?? Because what I know is usually swelling at the injection site???rnThank you
Giving DPT immunization has the possibility of fever, the child becomes weak, and the appearance of reddish bumps in the area around the injection site so it doesn't always have to be at the injection site, because DPT immunization is given by injection under the surface of the skin fat (subcutaneous injection). It can be given in a slightly tilted position from where the needle is inserted in order to position the tip of the needle just below the fat layer of the skin. So that the location of the vaccine being injected may not be right under the place where the needle enters the skin surface.
Side effects that occur after giving DPT immunization will generally disappear on their own within 3 days, but immediately take your child to the doctor if symptoms of a high fever of more than 39 degrees occur despite being given hot medicine or being helped by compresses, or seizures occur. If it's been 3 days the complaints have not disappeared, don't hesitate to check your child back to the doctor
Hope it is useful
