Side Effects After Measles Immunization?
after immunization against measles, should the injection be used in a compress of warm water or cold water to make it swollen?
Thank you for the question on HealthReplies.com,
Immunization is an action taken to improve a person's immune response to an illness. This process is carried out by administering vaccines to improve the immune response against certain diseases. Measles is one of the diseases included in the immunization recommendations by the Indonesian Pediatrician Association.
Immunization injections 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. To reduce pain in acute injuries (under 48 hours) initially cold compresses can be used first. However, after the pain has subsided, a warm compress can be used to widen blood vessels to the injured area for the healing process. Compress can be done alternately to relieve symptoms, not necessarily continuously.
If allergic reactions occur such as spots on the entire body, itching, shortness of breath, immediately take the related individual to the nearest hospital emergency room. Avoid using self medication without instructions and consulting a doctor first.
