Hello, Claraa. Thank you for the question submitted to HealthReplies.com. We can understand the concern you feel.
DPT2 vaccine is given by injection. In general, post-immunization follow-up events can be in the form of local symptoms such as redness, swelling, and pain at the injection site. The incidence rate reached 42.9%. This is a normal reaction and will improve on its own within a few days after injection of immunization. Applying eucalyptus oil to the injection site is not a prohibition. Make sure that the volume of eucalyptus oil is not excessive so as not to irritate the baby's skin.
Do not hesitate to consult with a pediatrician if there are complaints after immunization. To enrich insights, you can read articles about DPT immunization. Thus information from us. Hopefully always healthy. May be useful.
