POST-IMMUNIZATION: WHAT TO EXPECT

Most children go through several immunizations, and we all know this as shots that will fight against certain illnesses such as chicken pox and measles. But how does this happen? An antigen or a weakened version of the bacteria or virus is injected into the body to force the production of antibodies so that when the same germ enters the body in the future, the child already has the necessary defenses to fight it. But because bacteria are introduced in the system, your child's body may still react in certain ways when getting his or her shots. 

 

Here are post-immunization side effects to prepare for and what to do to give your child soothing relief:

 

Soreness and swelling in the affected area - Your child may feel some soreness where he or she was injected. The pain may be dull, much like a bruise. In order to relieve the pain, apply a hot compress to reduce the swelling.

Rashes - Your child may develop a rash after getting shots. This is normal so don't panic. Simply use a cold compress on the affected areas to soothe the itch and apply anti-itch cream to keep your little one from scratching.

Listlessness - Your child might seem a bit out of it a few days after his or her immunization. Allow him to sleep it off, or just rest while doing quiet activities such as reading or drawing, if he feels like it. He might not feel like eating so give him something easy to swallow, such as soup or juices.

Fever - If your child develops a slight fever, remember to let her get plenty of rest and drink a lot of liquids like water and freshjuice. To bring down the fever, give her the proper dose of Paracetamol made for children such as Calpol®; nothing works fasteron fever than the Paracetamol in Calpol®

 

Preparing and learning about post-immunization side effects are important to ensure that your child receives the comfort he needs and managing fever is an important part of that. Because when fever is gone, life takes its place.
