i would first like to know whether your child was given H. influenzae B vaccine in addition to Pentaxim
. if answer is yes, than u might be interested to know that pentaxim already has H. Influenzae B vaccine as its component, so please make it clear first.
secondly, fever following a vaccination
may last for even a week in some children. so fever is not so worrisome thing at this moment if the child is otherwise normally accepting feeds. you can give him paracetamol
round the clock 6 hourly for a day or two to check fever from rising.
as far as G6PD deficiency
is concerned it is not a contraindication to any of the vaccines given to your son so rest assured about this aspect.
nevertheless you can consult your pediatrician
to check for any illness in the child other than side effect of vaccines given so that you can be at peace of mind.
wish your son a rapid recovery
