My 18 mo DS got the DTaP vax yesterday morning and this morning I noticed a red rash on two areas of one leg (not the leg he got the vax in) and one area of one arm. The arm rash is definitely the smallest, but the ones on his leg cover the outer thigh are and the inner calf area. It's an area of redness with scattered raised spots. COuld this be from the vax? A bug bite of some kind? Food allergy? I immediately thought vax since he just got it yesterday but I'm not completely certain.
He didn't sleep well last night but in the morning and now he's in good spirits and acts pretty much normal. We followed the standard vax schedule until his 12 mo appt when we started getting 1 at a time so he's fully vaxed except one Prevnar, one polio and the one chicken pox vaccines.
I'm waiting for the nurse to call me back about this, but I kind of doubt that they'd attribute it to the DTaP, maybe unless it was completely obvious and common in which case they'll probably tell me to give him benadryl and it will go away. I could really use some help!
