Thank you for your query.
There is no reason to panic.Cellular DPT vaccines usually cause these problems.Your child is fine.There is no difference between the 2 vaccines except that one causes pain and fever. Pentaxim contains IPV too so just discuss with your doctor.You can always shift to painless from painful but not vice-versa. Hope this answers your query.Wishing your child a speedy recovery.Have a nice day.
