The Baby’s Stool Is Brownish Yellow After Immunization?
Hello, I am Riri. My baby is 2 months old. Yesterday, I finished my first get-through injection. He has fever for 1 day. And today his temperature is back to normal. But the pup is brownish yellow, not golden yellow like usual. Can this include the effect of the injection or is there some other cause? Please reply. Thanks.
Hello Riri Nur Anggraeni, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Discoloration of pup in children is very natural if it causes concern to the parents, especially if there is a previous history of post-immunization, usually parents will be more aware of any changes in their children.
The color of the stool which is still classified as normal is golden yellow to brownish yellow, this is because the color of the stool is influenced by bile dye, and the length of time the stool is in the intestine. The color of the stool is normally yellowish, if the stool has not been in the digestive tract / intestine too long. However, if it turns out that the stool takes a long time to pass through the intestine, then the color will turn a little greenish or brownish. In addition, sometimes the color of stool is influenced by the intake that enters the body, here is a glimpse of the color of stool that you need to know:
Yellow. infants / children who are only given exclusive breastfeeding will usually have golden yellow stools, while children with breast milk and formula milk usually have greenish yellow, brownish yellow, slightly brown, dark brown or greenish brown stools.
Green. Sometimes babies with greenish stools are still categorized as normal as long as they are not accompanied by other complaints such as nausea, vomiting, fever, fussiness, etc. This is because the intake tends to contain low levels of fat.
Red. This indicates that there are blood droplets in the stool, which should not be present. Usually occurs in babies / children who are allergic to formula milk, or have intestinal blockage / invagination. Usually in addition to the presence of reddish stool, it is always accompanied by other symptoms such as fussiness, flatulence, vomiting, fever, distended stomach and pain.
White / grayish. Stool that is colorless / tends to be colored like putty can indicate that the stool has failed to be stained by the bile, so that it can be ascertained that there is a disturbance in the bile ducts, or there is a disturbance in the liver.
The color of your child's stool turns brownish yellow and has no relationship with the DPT vaccine he gets. Side effects caused by DPT immunization are limited to low-grade fever, local pain at the injection site, and redness in the injection area. Until now there have been no reports that the DPT effect causes stool color to change.
That's all from us, hope it helps, thank you.
