Hi my baby is 4 month old. He had his vaccination 4 days ago. He had fever for 2 days gave him fevago for that. Again on the fourth day he has a fever of 101 at night time without any other symptoms like cold or flu. Please suggest what should I do?

  1. Hello Dear,

    Thank you for writing to us at MediMetry.
    Usually fever after whole cell DTP vaccine is common along with local injection site reactions ( induration, swelling, pain and warmth). As you have not mentioned which vaccine your baby has received and any local reactions present, it's hard to say with certainty that fever is because of vaccine. Even if it was initially because of vaccine which lasted for 48 hours, recurrence of fever after 2 days is not likely due to vaccine. So get your child to your doctor if fever persists more than 2 days.
    Hope this answers your query. Feel free to write back with follow-up questions.
