Can A Child With BCG Vaccine Be Treated For Milk Allergy?
Afternoon, my child is bcg vaccination schedule tomorrow but my child is recovering from milk allergy, can I get my child to get an injection?
BCG vaccine is useful for preventing TB / tuberculosis infection. BCG immunization is carried out on newborns for up to 2 months and adults who have never received BCG immunization. BCG immunization should not be given to people with immune system disorders, active TB infected, moderate burns, macroscopic hematuria, and a history of allergies to vaccine components. BCG vaccine is postponed in children with high fever, an injury to the skin of the injection site, and urinary tract infections.
Related to the condition of your child, it needs to be seen directly first, yes. Are there still complaints such as rashes, itching, or diarrhea? If it's still possible, then your child may get BCG immunization. But if based on the doctor's consideration it is not possible, BCG immunization can be postponed briefly until the child's condition is really fit. But try to immunize on time.
Therefore, I suggest that you consult firsthand with your pediatrician or doctor on duty at the health facility where you are immunizing your child. The doctor will do an examination first before deciding whether your child can be immunized or needs to be postponed.
Hope it helps you,
