Fever is more common following certain vaccinations, viz. DPT, and less common following others. Developing fever after all vaccinations is neither a certainity, nor an indicator of proper vaccination. Your doctor prescribed the medicines so that you may be able to give relief to the child JUST IN CASE HE DEVELOPS FEVER following the vaccination. So just be reassured that there is nothing to worry about and no action to be taken if the child does not develop fever. Get rid of this anxiety and enjoy the joys of parenthood!

Hi, doctor My daughter had her 5 year old vaccination on the 10 of January , after a couple of weeks I noticed a red rash on her legs and then her arms and the stomach, basically it spread all over her body except her face. I then took her to a pharmacist and he gave me a liquid form cortazan, medicine name is pre lone , it then started going away and as soon as she was running around and jumping up and down the jungle gyms did the rash come back really aggresively and now on her face it was very red, we then took her to a doctor and he told me she has a allergic reaction to something, but she has never had this before, I never changed her diet or the washing powder, it has been ever since the vaccination. The rash then started going away since giving her the medicine. But 3days now the rash has come back, it goes away and comes back and sometimes worse then the other times, but not as red, but itchy. Please help

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?
