Good afternoon … I want to ask, my child was on November 11 DPT immunization, 2 days still had fever then the day the heat went down. But the day after the heat went down my child had another fever for up to 4 days plus a cough too. Now the fever has gone down but the cough is still not healed. In addition, the former immunization has also been swollen until now on November 24, the injection mark has not yet been deflated … so what should I do? thank you

Hello Ifaa, Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.

Have you checked your child's condition to the doctor again?

In general, a person can experience fever as one of the body's responses in fighting off the infection that enters the body. Fever can be caused by various infectious diseases such as: flu, sore throat, ear infections, bronchitis, pneumonia, tuberculosis, measles, chicken pox, and others. In addition to infectious diseases, fever can also be caused by side effects of immunization, tooth growth, dehydration, and others.

Fever that appears after DPT immunization is the most common side effect. In addition to fever, after receiving the DPT vaccine, children can also experience redness, swelling, and pain at the injection site, fuss, and vomiting. If the injection area is still swollen, you should immediately check your child to the doctor. The injection area that is still swollen may be caused by an infection in the area. The doctor needs to examine your child and this swollen area to determine the cause and provide appropriate treatment for your child. You can also consult a doctor about complaints of cough that has not healed experienced by your child. In the meantime, you can apply a warm compress to this swollen area. You are also advised to continue breastfeeding your child.

Hopefully this information is useful.
