  • It's happened to my DS before, I don't remember which shots. If you're worried just keep an eye on him. As long as he's playing fine and it doesn't seem to bother him, I'm sure it's fine. But if you have the fact sheets on the shots, you should check to see if that's something to watch out for.

  • my daughter had that after some of her shots. If it the lump is really hard and looks like it is bothering him put a warm wet rag on it.

  • My mom used to say this happens when they pinch a vain, no big deal, just give him a soft massage and some tylenol... he'll be ok.

  • the doc probably gave the shot in a slightly wrong spot. i'd probably freak out and yell at the doc if it didn't go away.

  • It's a vaccine reaction. Report it. It's the law.
