Kidney issue : Puffy Eyes in a toddler with no urine suggests an issue with the kidneys. Your child needs to be seen at once. Please take her to a pediatrician for treatment. This may be nephrotic syndrome.
A female asked:

Possibly: Yes, this is within the timing and possibly range of symptoms to be related to the vaccination. However, other things must be considered. Has he had contacts with illness? Reptile contact? Any one in family cooking chitlins? Travel history? I would have him examined if he continues to be febrile and or if he appears listless.
A 16-year-old female asked:
Dr. Natalie Hodge
Pediatrics 26 years experience
Headaches : Headaches are a very complex medical problem requiring thoughtful history taking, exams and interventions both lifestyle and medications in some cases. So sorry you are having such trouble. I see you are 16 years old? Your pediatrician is a good place to start and if your team is not able to get an acceptable result you will need to see a pediatric neurologist for help. Best of luck to you!
