I am a little concerned about my 14 month old baby. She

Resolved Question:

Hello, I am a little concerned about my 14 month old baby. She received her MMR vaccine on Wednesday May 25th (9 days ago). She is out of sorts, has a fever since yesterday and has a watery eye. I attribute all of these things to the vaccine, however, on the day she received her vaccine she was also diagnosed with thrush, having had two tiny green/yellow mucous like discharges in her nappy. She has had these sporadically four or five times over the last three months. I am concerned that in accepting her current symptoms as vaccine related, I may be ignoring a UTI or some other infection.

This is Dr. David

she should not have had the vaccine if she had an active infection.

she might have a viral infection or a bacterial bladder infection

she might need a course of penicillin or amoxicillin antibiotics

usually green or yellow discharge is a sign of bacterial infection

she should get her urine checked for bacterial infection.

she should be using paracetamol to help bring down her temps and fevers

talk to her doctor about these issues.
