How to cure a large lump on the site of Tdap vaccine site?

I am a 50 yr. old female that got a Tdap vaccine 9 days ago and I still have a large lump at the site of injection on my arm....I also still have a low grade fever, lethargy, nausea. I am on generic 875 mg 2 x a day Augmentin for a feral cat bite and have had some bloody diarrhea.

Hi,

I am less concerned about the Tdap and more concerned about the cat bite, if you are having fever, lethargy or nausea. If there is any swelling or redness of the area that is not subsiding, I recommend seeing a doctor immediately, as these infections can become quite serious.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Gerald Lee, Internal Medicine Specialist
