Thanks for the query
Are you sure that your baby has been vaccinated for MMR. According to vaccination schedule MMR vaccine is scheduled after 12 months of age. Measles vaccine is generally given at 9 month of age in India. After measles vaccination there is a possibility of mild measles in the form of rashes which usually subsides within few days. There are very few cases of Reye's syndrome reported after measles or MMR vaccination in which SGOT/PT get raised. Raised lymphocytes suggest viral infection may be mild measles.
I would suggest you to consult your doctor for further evaluation.
I hope this answers your query effectively
With regards
