  • how old is he?? and i had a bad rash on my arm from a shot and it swelled up to be honest!!! Do this for me, touch the red rash and if it is warm to the touch i would take him to the hospital soon as possible but if its not warm just wait it out.. or call hospital and ask their oponion keep us updated please

  • well, it all depends on the rash... how old is he? I would recommend calling the nursery a at your local hospital, and speaking with a nurse or someone there. They may be more helpful than anyone on here can be! Good luck momma!

  • Did you read the paper that they gave you at the doctor's office or from where you had the shot done? What did it say to do?
