HealthReplies.com … r n My son injected immunization for 1 month lwt a week.

There is still a little red lump mark, even though it still festering but it’s still red. For that, a lump that is still red isn’t dangerous ?? Please explain, doctor. R nThank you …
Hi Sunny, Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
One of the side effects of immunization is the appearance of a rash, which can swell, and pain at the injection site. In general, these side effects will gradually improve within a few days. In some cases. The injection area may become infected with bacteria (can cause a pus to appear). If these symptoms appear, the best step is to consult a doctor because the infection that occurs must be treated properly so as not to cause further complications. Usually the BCG vaccine injection will indeed leave a scar in the form of scar tissue on the skin. If until now there are still red bumps, you should check with your doctor directly. The doctor needs to examine it directly to determine whether this lump needs further treatment or not or it is indeed a newly formed scar tissue.
In the future, if side effects appear in the form of a purulent lump at the injection site, you should immediately consult a doctor.
Hope this information is useful.
