Rabies Vaccine For Mumps?
In the morning, my 7 year old child was bitten by a neighbor’s pet dog. for prevention, I gave my child the rabies vaccine at the hospital. The doctor said he needed 5 vaccines. When I was about to get the 3rd vaccine, my son was mumps. I asked the doctor first if it was safe to get the vaccine against mumps. The doctor said that GPP is important to keep clean. After the vaccine, every day my son’s ankle condition gets worse. Starting from swallowing pain, canker sores, excess saliva, to drinking should use a straw. And today is exactly a week, my son’s lips are slightly swollen and complains that his chest hurts. What happened to my child? Is all of that the effect of mumps (but why is it so severe) or is it a result of getting vaccinated during mumps? Please explain, thank you
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Mumps is a condition where there is infection and inflammation of the salivary glands caused by a viral infection. Some of the symptoms that can arise from a person infected with the mumps virus are as follows:
Fever that can reach 39-40 degrees Celsius. Dry mouth accompanied by difficulty chewing and swallowing food Joint pain and headaches. Loss of appetite and abdominal pain. Feeling tired throughout the body. The response to infection to the body is very individual, depending also on the infectious power of the virus, and the symptoms that appear in your child are quite severe. Meanwhile, rabies is a disease known as mad dog which is caused by a bite transmitted through the saliva of an animal with rabies. This disease attacks the brain and nerves, the incubation period from rabies infection is fast, which is four days with symptoms that can be caused are high fever, aggressive behavior and fear of water or hydrophobia. Prevention of rabies transmission is to immediately wash the bite or scratch of an animal suspected of rabies and the doctor immediately provides anti-rabies vaccination (serum).
In the case of your child who has been vaccinated against rabies and now a mumps infection occurs, the typical symptoms of mumps are shown by your child but it does not rule out the effect of side effects from vaccination. The need for a detailed examination to the doctor who has treated your child. However, if the examination has been carried out, there is nothing to worry about, it is advisable to carry out the existing treatment according to the doctor's instructions. In addition, if the intact of nutrition is quite difficult, it is necessary to consider additional nutrition per infusion to help the child in the healing process.
That's all I can say, hopefully it's useful.
