In the afternoon I want to ask, I have a baby aged 2 months, today I just got bgc injections. Can I inject the baby after bathing?

1 Answer:

Hello Sisell,

Thank you for the question.

BCG (bacille calmette guerin) immunization is given to increase the child's immunity against Tuberculosis (TB). As is known, Indonesia is one of the countries with the highest prevalence of TB in the world. In children, often the symptoms of TB are not typical. It's just that, if treatment is not carried out immediately, the child's growth can be hampered, and even other dangerous complications can also arise.

After BCG immunization there is no prohibition for babies to bathe. In fact, by being washed clean, the risk of a former immunization for secondary infection can be reduced. But you should avoid rubbing or over-pressing the former immunization so that the child does not feel uncomfortable.

I hope this helps.
