I came across this whilst doing a search on google (naughty I know!) - exactly the same thing has happened to my little boy.

He had his 12 week vaccinations and a few hours later he started crying hysterically (something he's never done before) and nothing we could do would calm him down. We noticed that one of his legs was very very red and swollen so we quickly lay him down and stripped him off. After 5-10 mins he calmed down and the redness went (although there were a few spots in the area that had been red). We thought it was a direct effect of the jab but the same thing happened a week later only this time it was both of his legs. You could literally draw a line mid way down his thighs where the redness started. It happened again this afternoon just on one leg but the other one went red/purple blotchy. I'm taking him to the docs tommorrow.

I just wanted to share as this is really scaring me, and im worrying as he's due his next set of jabs in a few weeks x

your post from 2010!


Hi
I hope you can help?

I have found your post when searching on google, my 18 week old daughter has exactly the same symptoms as you describe. This has happened on quite a few occasions now, the first being a few days after her 8 week vaccinations, then after after the 12 week and again after the 16 week ones with a few other episodes as well. The first time this happened we went to a&e with the same, it going away leaving a slight rash which the hospital wanted to check out so we had to stay in for observation for a few hours, but she was fine and happy by then!!

We have just seen a paediatrician who is going to look into this further but she initially thought it was urticaria or hives, which, on looking at pics of hives doesnt look like it at all, the symptons you describe are identical, red swollen legs and feet, with blue/purple patches and the veins look like they are at the surface. It is awful to see and she is so upset when it happens. Did you ever find out what it was? did you have any more episodes? i really hope you are still on this site as well and will read this post.

Thank you
Lesley x

a few months on!!


Hi Bon03! Just reading your post of 28 may! My little one is now 8 months old! We did not get an answer to the problem after having checks and blood tests we were told that she would probably grow out of it and its more likely something to do with blood vessels settling down as she gets older! I haven't had an episode since march now touch wood! I personally thought it happened when she was extremely upset and agitated and a couple of times it did leave small bruises on her legs just above her ankles. As soon as u think its coming on try to give your little one some calpol and try just walking around with her and remove all the clothing from her legs and feet trying not to touch them or as little as possible as it seemed like this hurt more when we touched them! I'm booked in to see consultant just before yearly jabs just in case it is associated with them but she thinks its just coincidence. Good luck and hugs to your little one xx

Another worried mother


Here's another worried mom!

Just two weeks ago, my 5 months old baby had the same symptoms and none of te doctors or nurses we saw or spoke to has any clue to what it was. She was sitting in her babysitter while her dad was changing diapers on her twin sister, when she suddenly started screaming. At first I thought I had scared her because I had just walked out of the shower and into the room where they were. We couldn't comfort her in any way. She wouldn't eat. I thought I'd change her diaper and that's when I noticed her legs. They were hot, red and so swollen her toes went blue. I immediately called for an ambulance. My baby was screaming like crazy for an hour or so and I wish for her to never be in such pain again. The swelling left small bruises on her skin, just like a few of you described. They don't really think it's an allergic reaction, although they treated it like anafylaxia.

Has any of you gotten a diagnosis yet? I'm so worried it will reoccur and as I was browsing for information I found this thread. I live in Sweden but have found no forum threads or any information at all about this in swedish. Please, if any of you have some morse information absolut this, would you please share it?
