Thanks for writing to health care magic.
That excessive cry is because of pertussis
component of the vaccine
A baby having this relatively rare complication of this vaccine cries excessively for hours.
This is a traumatic experience as I came across few cases of such complications. The baby cries so much so that the whole family starts crying. (This is the frank reality I came across)
Try to go for the DTaP vaccine instead of DTwP the next time. The former is less costlier.
I do not think that suppository is necessary.
should suffice and the baby should be fine within 48hrs.
You may contact me with further details on the following URL...........
In such scenario the questions are directly forwarded to me .............. and I can answer your queries regarding your kid online regularly.
Hope this helps.
