Child had shots, been warm, splotches on ear. Is this a reaction?

My daughter (9months) had 4 shots done today, she is acting pretty normal for this. Only slightly warm, pretty crabby, but other than that she seems fine. Her right ear, though, has red splotches in it. Near her ear canal and up by the cartalidge and I have no Idea what it is. She s not fussing with it and her other ear is fine. Just wondering if this might have something to do with a reaction to her shots or if it might be something else and if I should take her to have it checked out. Thank you.

hi there, slight temperature and crabbiness is to be expected after vaccine shots and per her ear condintion if it is not troubling her and she is not uncomfortable with it then you can just keep a watchful eye that it does not progress or she doesn't complain about it, you may not do anything at present but if it gets worse then may be visit a pediatrician so that he can take a look and advise you accordingly. Take caare.
