Hello Hafiz, Thank you for your question on

Post-immunization effects often occur in some people, just as immunization drugs also have side effects, although not everyone experiences them. The effects that occur after immunization are called AEFI (Post Immunization Adverse Events), AEFI after diphtheria immunization can occur mild or severe, mild AEFIs can disappear on their own without special treatment, but severe AEFIs must be handled with special care. What may happen to your sister is a mild AEFI, such as swollen hands, swelling at the injection site, fever and vomiting. However, the symptoms experienced by your sister can also be caused by other things, namely:

Insect bites Skin tissue infections Allergic ulcers If the swelling in your sister's hand does not go away within three days, and if accompanied by pus at the injection site, high fever, and chills, immediately consult a doctor, so that an examination of your sister's arm is made, to confirm whether the cause is AEFI or other causes, so the doctor can provide therapy according to the cause.

Some things you can do are:

Compress with cold water on the injection wound Take pain reliever medication, if you feel pain in your arm Avoid holding and squeezing the injection wound, Read the article about Post-Immunization Adverse Events (AEFI)

Thank you, hopefully useful. dr. Nurmarwiyah
