Hello, my 6 year old child is very hot, and at Kakix, the hand appears and itching and scars, my question is whether my child can be injected with rubella
Hello, Lince, thanks for asking HealthReplies.com.
Rubella injections (MR / Measles and Rubella vaccines) are given to children aged 9 months to 15 years for free from the government during August to September 2018 as a government effort to prevent measles and rubella infections. We recommend that all children between the ages of 9 months and 15 years get MR immunization in order to have immunity to this disease. Some conditions that can prevent a child from receiving this immunization are:
1. Have an allergy to the vaccine component (neomycin)
2. Severe renal dysfunction
3. Are undergoing radiotherapy, taking immunosuppressants or corticosteroids
4. Pregnant women
5. Blood disorders such as severe anemia and leukemia
6. In patients with fever, flu, cold cough, diarrhea, vaccine administration should be postponed
So, to find out whether or not to be immunized with MR, you should come to a primary health facility (such as a health center) so that your child will be examined by a health worker. The doctor will check whether the child is in a condition to receive the vaccine or not. If possible, the vaccine will be given immediately, but if not, the doctor will treat your child's condition according to the findings of the physical examination and the cause. The cause of frequent heat can be due to inflammation of the tonsils (tonsillitis), insufficient nutrition, lack of rest, environmental and personal hygiene, etc. Frequent itching can be caused by a history of allergies, atopic dermatitis, environment (eg lots of insects, dryness), etc. Check with your doctor if this condition is bothersome.
That's all, hopefully it's useful.
Greetings, dr. Sarah Rizqia.
