Baby With Post-vaccination Drug Consumption With What?
after the baby is vaccinated should you take the medicine given by the midwife using breast milk or warm water?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Need to clarify, what medicine do you mean? What vaccine did your baby get before? How old is your baby now?
After vaccination, babies do not always have to be given drugs. In some types of vaccines, which can cause fever as a follow-up symptom, often doctors will prescribe antipyretic drugs, as a treatment in case of fever. Some other medicines can also be prescribed by the doctor if for example your baby shows symptoms of certain illnesses during vaccination.
If you are referring to antipyretics (for example paracetamol), you can give this medicine if your child's body temperature rises more than 37.5 degrees Celsius. Giving this drug can be directly given any mixture, because usually the doctor will give the drug in the form of syrup. If the doctor gives the medicine in the form of powder, and your baby is more than 6 months old, you can give it with boiled water mixed. However, if the age of your baby is still less than 6 months, you should consult with your doctor first regarding the best way of administration.
In addition to giving medication, to relieve fever after vaccination, you can also compress the baby's neck, armpits, and / or groin with warm water. If the fever does not subside in 1 to 3 days, do not hesitate to check your child back to the doctor or a pediatrician.
I hope this helps.
