Blotches on face after third set of jabs - panicking a bit - any ideas!

My 4 month old had her 3rd set of jabs this morning. Now she is very upset & tired (but won't go to sleep now, although she slept for 90 mins straight after - she had some Calpol too) and has red blotches on her forehead and under her eyes. Doctor's is not open til 3.30. I don't know if the blotches are from her screaming - they're less red since she's calmed down - or some sort of reaction to the jabs. She keeps rubbing at them - or it could be her eyes as she seems sotired. Any ideas or experiences of this to stop me panicking until I can ring the doctor? Thanks!

it doesn't sound like anything to get too worried about - she is still very young and these jabs are a bit of a shock to the system.She will probably be ok after a bit of a rest.Was she ok with the other sets of jabs? maybe a like warm flannell to the eyes will soothe her a bit.

Do you know, they've gone now - think she is just hot and bothered after the jabs. She's had a good feed now and I think is going off to sleep OK in her cot. I feel like a total panicking idiot ! She was fine after the last lot. So I'm just going to leave her now but keep an eye on her. Panic over.
