Good afternoon, thank you for asking to HealthReplies.com.
The occurrence of fever after immunization is one of the conditions following the immunization or KIPI. Usually this happens because of an inflammatory reaction. Inflammatory reactions can occur with different intensity, i.e.
1. Light or local, ie only at the location where the injection is in the form of Levan or appears reddish. When it happens can be compressed with cold water or ice wrapped with compresses.
2. Moderate or systemic is fever, headache. This can occur for several days around 3 to 5 days but usually does not worsen and is relatively stable. If it happens then you should get enough fluids and use fever medications such as paracetamol or ibuprofen.
3. Anafilactive is severe inflammation associated with the body's immune system that is not functioning properly. This is an emergency and needs to be handled immediately.
If a mild and moderate KIPI reaction occurs, an early handler can be done at home and observation is carried out. However, if Anaphilactive reaction is immediately taken to the nearest hospital.
