Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com
Vaccines can be accompanied by side effects or post-immunization follow-up events (KIPI), including mild to high fever, pain and swelling in the injection site, and a bit fussy. However, the reaction will disappear in 3-4 days.
if the child has KIPI as above, you can give warm water compresses, and fever-reducing drugs every 4 hours. Just wear thin children's clothes, without being covered. In addition, give ASI more often, accompanied by additional nutrients from fruit and milk. If the condition does not improve, immediately consult a child to the doctor.
Coughing colds that occur after immunization can be a side effect of vaccination itself which sometimes gives flu-like symptoms (flu like symptoms) or a separate disease. Both the side effects of immunization and separate diseases (respiratory tract infections), coughs and colds will not usually cause serious health problems in infants. The cause of respiratory tract infections in infants and children most often is a virus, especially rhinovirus. Respiratory tract infections in infants and children caused by a virus, do not need to be treated because it can heal itself in 10 to 14 days.
There are several things you can do before seeing a doctor
compressing the child's forehead with a warm cloth and underarms moisten the air of the room using an air humidifier or humidifier, or bathe the baby with warm water. Steam from warm water can help thin the mucus in the nose and throat and help relieve your baby's breathing. Give enough fluids such as breast milk and water so that the child does not get dehydrated. if you have done the above and there is no improvement or getting worse you can immediately consult a pediatrician, so that the doctor can do a direct examination and look for the cause so the doctor can provide proper handling.
Thus the info we can provide
hopefully can help you
get well soon for the younger brother
