Hi Aini,


The emergence of bumps and pus is a normal reaction that occurs after BCG vaccination. Generally, lumps occur within a few hours or days and will rupture and leave scar tissue. The emergence of bumps and pus and scar tissue is actually a sign that the vaccination has been successful.


Sometimes in the injection area can grow back lumps. The duration of the condition for bumps, sores and pus may vary between babies and the condition is not to worry about as long as there are no other complaints.


If lumps and pus still occur even after several months of injection (> 5 months) then the condition should be examined by a doctor directly to ensure the possibility of infection or other skin disorders such as ulcers get appropriate treatment.
