Thank you for your query.

BCG vaccine ulcer can take 6-8 weeks to heal. If the duration of the ulcer has been longer than this then it shall be advisable to give your son a course of INH.

You son needs to be investigated for the low haemoglobin and the high eosinophil count which may be unrelated to the BCG ulcer.

I hope I have answered your query to your satisfaction.

Wishing your son an early recovery.
