ds had boosters yesterday and has a swollen area on one arm by injection site. feels hot to touch and is red. I am sure this is all normal but just wanted to check and see if anyone knew.

The nurse did give injections quick for obvious reasons - this is the arm that some of the stuff appeared to come back out of (she put it in lots faster than we are trained in other injections).

do not panic if his arm swells to twice its size (DS had one popeye arm after his pre-school booster of DTP) .. supposedly that is normal, albeit frightening, too

ds does think his muscles got bigger bless him. Should i give him spinach? it was his dtp i think - mmr in other arm. He has had them late too.

hi twiglett - sorry didnt respond to your post. ds was fine with mmr combined although i know that this is a diff subject with strong emotions. Hope everything goes fine (sure it will). I treated ds for being brave afterwards.
