Question
I have Gilbert's syndrome and I just had a baby four months ago. Is it safe to give dtap if she inherited this from me? She cut her finger on kitchen knife while I was slicing apple( reached out and grabbed it) I was going to wait to get shots until I got Genetics test done but now I fear tetanus. Can her liver handle vaccines??

Hi XXXXXXX,
Welcome to healthcare Magic!
XXXXXXX syndrome patients can be given all the vaccines just like in any other individual. It does not affect the drug pharmacokinetics either to any significant extent.
Just make sure that her cut gets a medical attention per se.
Dressing and antibiotics if deemed essential.
I hope the advise would be informative and useful for you.
Take Care!

My 11 month old daughter, who has had a flu shot, was playing at a friends house Sunday. Today my friend took her child to the dr with a fever and a nasal swab said she had the flu. Can my daughter get the flu? If so, how long does it take for the symptoms and what should I watch for or what should I do? Also, can my daughter be contagious now? Do I need to keep her from other children?

Hi for over a week now my 11 year old son has been complaining of back pain. I can see no bruising or any sign of having been bumped. He says it hurts when he coughs, bends, twist. He does have asthma but has had a flu jab last week, where his chest was checked and was clear. He says it aches really bad down the top half of your spine, is it a pulled muscle.
