I hate vax time

Last year when ds2 got his vaccines his arm swelled up and turned purple and red. His skin got scaly and hot to the touch and hard as a rock. There was yellow pus coming out where he got the shots. His arm was hurting him a lot and he said he couldn't feel his hand.
This year he tells me he cannot lift his arm. I check his arm and sure enough it is hot and hard to the touch less than four hours later. I put a cold compress on it and will monitor it but I hate this. His arm hurts and is just hanging there limply to the side wile he uses his other hand for everything.

Friday the baby has to get shots and he is WAY Behind. I am not looking forward to it and feel sorry for my baby already.

My 17 month old hasn't had a shot since 6 months. She had a mild reaction to one of her 4 month shots and I'm not willing to risk a more serious reaction. My 3 year old is up to date, but he also had mild reactions to his shots.


I hope he feels better soon!

Poor kiddo. Maybe he is allergic to something they use?

You might get him tested for MTHFR.
