    Default Normal reaction??

    Hi all, as post states, would you consider this normal? First time one of my children have reacted like this?? Immunisation yesterday around 10am? ImageUploadedByThe Bub Hub1365759837.561194.jpgImageUploadedByThe Bub Hub1365759846.188760.jpg

    Poor thing, what was the vaccine? I wouldn't say it's 'normal', but I wouldn't be too concerned unless she feels unwell.

    It's the 4 yr old ones, don't have the book on me to check names. She doesn't seem unwell, no fever or anything. Maybe localised redness just from needle?
    Thanks for responding

    They are all boosters, so I would put it down to localised swelling from the needle rather than a vaccine reaction.

    Redness and swelling is a normal reaction to the the adjuvant, whose purpose is to trigger an inflammatory response. Sometimes it's less of a response and sometimes (like here) it's rather more (poor girl). But nothing to worry about. Which vaccine?

    My DS had a reaction like this at his 6mth needles I thought she put the vaccine too close to the skin (not in muscle deep enough). It took a good week to go away.

    Thanks for everyone's responses. It's the infenrix ipv vaccine. The whopping cough/diphtheria/tetanus one. Doctor called back last night. It's getting less red and hot today, so that's good it hasn't bothered her at all, so at least that's a positive as well!
