Question: My baby had his third vaccination and the area which they give injection has become very hard..its like touching a rock..what to do ?
Answer: Hi....if the vaccine given was PCV, you have to massage with ice cubes(keep 2/3 ice cubes in a cloth n rub on that area slowly). If it is other than PCV you have to massage with warm cloth (boil some water, dip a cotton cloth in that n squeeze. When the cloth is just warm massage gently). Don't worry. By 3rd or 4th day it becomes normal.
Question: Hello, it's been a month my baby got vaccinated , but even after a month the injected area is hard n lumpy. What to do ??
