A trip to the Doc (Again)

We just came back from the paed again, went there this afternoon. Jayden was very restless last night, woke up at one time and his fever came back. I also noticed some red blotches on his chest and back area. We gave him Parmol and we all went back to sleep. This morning, when he woke up, I checked his temperature and it was 38.2 d.c., and the red blotches were more this time. I quickly gave him another round of Parmol for his fever. I called hubby to go to the paed immediately, we were there at 3pm.


Red blotches all over his chest and back area

Paed informed us that Jayden has Urticaria (Fong Mok) as a result of the Pneumococcal vaccination he had on Wednesday. Urticaria is a kind of skin rash and apparently, is not very common for babies to have this reaction after the vaccination, it is considered as an uncommon after effect. It will affect only 1-4.5% of patients who have been given this vaccination. Anyway, paed said to give him bath as normal and keep him in cool, light clothing. He also prescribed a medication for Jayden, to be taken day and night, it's drowsy too, so I hope it'll help Jayden have a better rest.



Jayden was playing as normal after coming back from visit to the paed

Other than that, Jayden was his usual cheeky self while waiting for his turn, talking to people around him and smiling away hhehe... His temperature is now normal.

21 friends spoke up!:

Good that Jayden is getting better now.

Last time when Sarah had high fever,she will also get rashes. But after apply some cream on it, the rashes started to subside.
