My ds had a BCG vaccine at 8 weeks. We live in a TB country...

He's now 5months today.

It's a centimeter in diameter and stands about 5mm proud. Sore too and the skin is flaking.

What should I do? I've read that some drain it and some leave it....

Ow! That looks nasty sad can you take him back to the doctor?

Don't touch it. It's normal. It can remain like this for months and then goes down.
