Post Immunization Abscesses In Children Aged 10 Months.?
Good morning … I want to ask, my child is now 10 months old … about 3 months ago my child has been able to get immunized and polio immunization … The injection has a lump, even though I have compressed warm water … I have often asked the midwife he said why? but last night I took it to the doctor and said my child had an abscess and had to get surgery … Is there another way to treat it besides surgery ??
Hello, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com
DPT immunization is immunization to prevent diphtheria, pertussis and tetanus. This vaccine also includes the type of mandatory immunization. Some of the side effects of this immunization include:
Swelling at the injection Mild fever The skin at the injection becomes red and sick Child looks tired Child becomes fussy etc. These side effects will usually disappear a week to several months after the injection. Side effects occur because your child's body forms an immune complex. But if it occurs continuously even more than 3 months it can be caused by an abscess, or celulitis.
Abscess management generally requires a small surgical procedure to remove trapped pus or pus and cleansing or debriding.
If you are worried you should consult your child's condition with the doctor who treats your child and discuss the therapeutic options that are related to the clinical condition of your child.
So much information from me, hopefully it helps
