Re: Is this a normal vaccination reaction? ((NEW PIC - UPDATED 72 Hours After Shot))

this looks like cellulitis-I got it after a shot and it's very painful and serious!

A friend of mine also said that it looks like cellulitis...he doesn't have a fever, though, and he's not complaining of pain. I'm anxious to get into the doctor - only 3 more hours...

My dd had this same reaction to her last shots at her 12 mo appointment last April. I had no idea it was a serious thing, though I knew she was miserable. Our oedi's office is a pain in the arse!!! I even called them twice to ask about it and they brushed me off. Bah!
