My DS1 had his 4yr vaccinations on Wednesday.
Yesterday we noticed his arm swollen a little and has a red rash going from his shoulder to his elbow, which is warm to the touch.
It is still there today.
He is displaying no other symptoms and is otherwise his happy little self.
Has any one else had the same reactions to the 4 yr vaccinations?
Should I be worried?
I should have called the doctor earlier today but we've been on the go non stop and it's only now I'm realising this is the 3rd day since he got the jabs.

I definitely think you should get to a doc ASAP, any reaction to a vaccination needs to be looked at and treated

I think as long as he has no fever it should just be a common rash reaction, apparently this kind of reaction is common with the dtap shots at 4 ( same thing happened to my friends son) I would still call the GP in the morning to report it just in case!

Yeah, if I could get in to see our doctor on a weekend I would be in there tomorrow first thing.
He was in daycare today, and even with the heat, he was buzzing around and happy when I picked him up at 3. Then we went to a playground and he ran around there for half an hour or so, so he's not even slightly off, no high temp either.
I've done a bit of googling and it's not uncommon to have a warm rash after.
Why the hell isn't it listed as common reaction with the after care sheet you get.
This doesn't make me trust the immunisation board at all.
