I did the mm vaccination 2 days ago but I forgot to use antibiotics but the antibiotics are local to be applied to the skin. Does that matter?

Hello Intan, Thank you for your question on HealthReplies.com

Meningitis is an inflammation of the lining of the brain, meningitis is caused by a viral, bacterial, fungal, or parasitic infection that spreads from the blood to the cerebrospinal fluid and meningitis can cause nerve damage, brain damage and even death. Meningitis can be prevented by vaccination or immunization, meningitis vaccine contains antigens that stimulate the immune system to form antibodies against the cause of meningitis.

And the relationship with the antibiotics you take has nothing to do, basically antibiotics do not interfere with the potency of the vaccine, and have no effect on the formation of antibodies in the administration of the vaccine.

However, it is highly recommended not to take antibiotics carelessly without a doctor's prescription, and if after immunization for meningitis there is a bruise under the skin that was injected, which doesn't go away within a few days, even with symptoms of pain, swelling, and pus under the skin, get checked out immediately. see a doctor for further treatment.

Some suggestions for you

Avoid holding or squeezing the injection site too often. If you have bruises or pain, immediately apply a compress. If a lump appears, avoid breaking it. If you have a fever or pain, take a fever or pain reliever such as paracetamol. Thank you, hopefully this is useful. dr.Nurmarwiyah
