This afternoon when he came back from school, I was shocked to see his left upper arm, the place where he got the jab yesterday. It looked big, swollen, red and hardened. He never got any side effect from immunization since he was a baby.
His left upper arm, where he got the jab
His normal right upper arm
I tried to call a clinic which we always visited, but instead of getting an advice, the doctor told me to bring my boy to let him check, sigh!
Later follow a friend’s advice I applied heat pack on the affected area with the hope it can soften the hardened site, then follow sister-in-law’s advice I applied cold pack to ease the soreness.
At night, he even complained that the jab area was very itchy and I had to give him anti-histamine to ease the itchiness, then only he dozed off.
Poor boy, hope you get well soon!
