My 1 year old developed a mild case of chicken pox from his varicella vaccination. What should I use for the itching?

My 1 year old developed a mild case of chicken pox from his varicella vaccination. What should I use for the itching?

Chicken Pox: Good for getting the vaccine- even if you get chicken pox, it is usually much milder! Making your child feel more comfortable is the main thing. Give tepid baths with baking soda or oatmeal powder to soothe itching. Prevent scratching when possible. Keep the skin clean, and cool. Tylenol (acetaminophen) for fever (NO aspirin) Call your doc if there is high fever. ...Read more

Is it possible for vaccinations to lead to any brain side effects?

Is it possible for vaccinations to lead to any brain side effects?

Rarely if ever: Before 1992 the DPT vaccine was well known for irritability, high fever & occasional fevers. The mmrv combo shot has been linked to high fever & occasional seizures in 1 yo's. That said, the newer dtap vaccine eliminated the side effects while improving the vaccine & physicians rarely give the mmrv to 1yo any more. The listed brain effects were temporary but led to realistic changes in use. ...Read more

Hello, I would like to ask about your opinion on vaccination Gardasil 9 against HPV virus. Is there any serious side effects of this vaccination?

See below: Side effects are uncommon and are usually limited to the site of injection. You may consult this site for more information on this topic: http://www. Mayoclinic. Org/diseases-conditions/hpv-infection/in-depth/hpv-vaccine/art-20047292

Hi I was curious what are the side effects of the HPV shot I got vaccinated for hpv today but I don't know what kind it was?

Almost none: Not sure what you mean by "what kind". In the US, only one HPV vaccine is available (Gardasil). You might have a little pain at the injection site for a couple of days, but that's about all. So congratulations on starting the vaccine; you won't regret it. But be sure and get the second dose in 1-2 months and the third at 6 months. ...Read more
