Infants Do Not Chapter For 6 Days After BCG Immunization?

Hello, Dy, thanks for asking HealthReplies.com.
BCG immunization is one of the efforts made to prevent tuberculosis infection, generally given to babies aged 2 months. BCG vaccine is safe and rarely causes side effects. If there are side effects, which usually appears is a fever and the formation of a lump / scar tissue at the injection site.
Meanwhile, the child has not been defecating for 6 days due to several things, such as constipation / constipation due to lack of fluids, consumption of formula milk, newly introduced solid foods, or due to medical conditions such as: gastrointestinal organ abnormalities at birth, electrolyte disturbances, hypothyroidism, disease Hirschprung, etc.
To determine the cause, you can see your child to the doctor. The doctor will check and see the condition of your child, and if necessary, the doctor will also conduct a supporting examination such as a complete blood test and X-ray.
You can continue to give ASI to your child in accordance with their needs, lest he dehydrate / lack of fluids. Stimulate the movement of the intestine by moving the baby's feet like he is pedaling a bicycle, and gently giving warm telon oil to his stomach. If this method has not been successful, or there are other symptoms such as: vomiting, unable to fart, the baby looks fussy and in pain, bleeding from the anus, a very bloated stomach, a weak baby, do not want to drink, fever, you should immediately take it to the doctor to get the right treatment.
That's all, hopefully it's useful.
