Vaccine reaction - do I need to do anything?

DD had her pre school boosters in Thursday. Since then the one that isn't MMR (diphtheria?) has reacted quite badly at the vaccine site - I've tried to attach a pic. It's now 7x5cm red and raised. DD is a bit warm and sleepy but otherwise fine. I was hoping it would be getting better not worse by now! Is this normal and do I need to do anything?!

Give her piriton and ring the doctors tomorrow. Draw around it with a pen now so you can see if its still spreading.

If she has trouble breathing take her straight to a and e but to be honest I think if that was going to happen it would have happened by now.

You need to let the doctor know so that they know to keep an eye on her when she has any more jabs.

Looks pretty normal. Keep an eye on it but don't worry for now.
