Hi, my baby is four months old now, and I am wondering what natural pain remedies I can use for her. She got her 4 month vaccinations (I am on the fence about vaccines but my wife made it clear she thinks it is very important so we are going ahead and doing vaccines). This time, she had a reaction. She has had a fever and her vaccination sites are bright pink and swollen and clearly painful. I know some remedies for fever (lemon water, garlic in socks, tepid bath...) wouldn't mind more suggestions on that, but what I really need are remedies for the pain she is experiencing. The bath helped a little, but only temporarily. Cold washcloths on her sores seemed to irritate her. Are there herbs I can give her or use in a bath or compress? Please help! Breastfeeding seems to be the only thing that has helped but sometimes she is full and doesn't want to nurse anymore but is still in pain.
