Has anyone's child had a very red sore leg after this vaccine?
I have taken her back to the GP who recommended nurofen and an ice pack (quite hard to administer on a wriggly active 15 month old!) She said it should go down by the morning but this morning its about 20% bigger, red and very hot to the touch.

Not sure whether I am being paranoid or if its some sort of infection that needs looking at?

Didn't want this to be unanswered, if you are worried then go back to GP
Also what did the vaccine insert say? There be advice on there of common reactions, you should have been given that before vaccine was administered - hope lo is ok x
