This happened to my niece a day after her jabs. The doctors say they don't know what it was, but it was terrible.

Same experience here


Last night, my 3-month-old baby had the exact same symptoms. Sudden, extreme crying, with red, swollen legs, for no apparent reason. At first we thought he had just been startled by my dad's deep voice, but the crying just got more and more intense, and then we noticed the bright red legs. This is a baby who hardly ever cries, so it was clear that he was in pain. After about 10 minutes, I was about to call emergency services, when the redness gradually started to fade. He's fine now, with just a couple of tiny bruise-like dots on his leg. I'm sure it isn't vaccine related, because he has never had an immunization in his life. I would sure like to know if anyone finds out what causes this.

Red swollen legs and crying 5 month old


Our 5 month old has had 2 episodes where he screams and nothing soothes him. One was approximately a month ago, the latest just now. Both times happened soon after I changed his clothes and was feeding him, and had him on his play mat briefly. I think I see tiny bumps, like he was bitten by mosquitoes or something on his toes, ankle etc., but we don't have flees and the mosquitoes were not out a month ago, and not yet now.
I don't have allergies, but rarely, my hands swell up, red, and itchy for unknown reasons. My wife gets hives (from citrus she thinks).
Since cold water helps my hands, I soak a washcloth in cool water and rub his legs down. It seems to sooth him immediately. It last about 10-15 min or until I get him wiped down with a cool cloth. We unfortunately still have carpet until I can install wood, maybe its from the dust? Contact allergy? Doesn't seem to correlate with any vaccines.
The fact that wiping his legs with the wet cloth help, makes me think my baby was having a contact allergy reaction to something.

My DS - 4 months had the exactly problem.

He cried and I was unable to soothe him. As soon as I got to the GP, the redness went away.

I wished I know what went wrong. *sigh

Hi dont know if you still use this site, but im doing some research now as the same thing happened to my 5month old son, it had happened to him 3times approx once a month since started his vaccines. Although it happened a month after vaccines now after reading things on internet im sure it was caused by vaccination. He was seen by gp everytime and got no answer what could have caused it, once addmitted to hospital. He is fine now just wondered what happened to babies that had the same thing ? Some comments here are from few years ago so im hoping some mums still on this site now and can tell me if babies are ok, did they just grow out of it? Thank you very much

Help


Hi to all the lovely mummas out there.

I notice this thread is dated. I'm having the same problems as described here with my 17 week old baby girl. My Dr is saying she has Mitchell's disease. I am hoping and praying this is not that case. I am just wondering if anyone is still active? If so how long did this last? Did it only happen the once to your child?

Scared mumma. X

Blotchy legs mystery


Hi Mums, and thanks for all the posts on this thread, as despite being a while ago, they have calmed my worries slightly where doctors have failed! Our 19 week old boy has had this exact same thing for the past 2 weeks, starting 8 hours after his 3rd set of jabs and having flare ups every couple of days. We're currently waiting for blood test results and just hoping it goes away. If any of you read this I would be interested to know how your little ones are now, and if any one know what it is and how long it lasts. Thanks again for the info on here, it's keeping me sane at the mo! X

I would like to post because I suffer from something that may be it, it is called hives. And yes it can be triggered by vaccines, not because of the vaccine but the needle!!! Hives is caused by an over production of histamines, histamines is your body's defense when something happens to it like a mosquito bite for intense histamines are what made the large red bump (not the bite). Some people have what's called chronic hives (I do) ill spare you the big medical term. But if I shake hands with someone my body thinks I've been "attacked" and over releases histamines. This causes hives, itchy red/pink tiny bumps and boy are they itchy. Now luckily I'm sure your LO dont have it as bad as bad as me, but they most likely suffer from hives. They are harmless, not contagious, just a symptom of over histamine production. The good news is Benadryl for those who have older babies is a H1 histamine blocker otherwise known as an anti histamine, for an h2 histamine blocker you will need to see your doctor as the only one available OTC is an adult heartburn (Zantac) medication. Sometimes benodryl helps, sometimes it doesn't when it doesn't its because the histamine being produced is h2.

The reaction from the vaccine most likely triggered over histamine production because the body thought it was being attacked (like a big bite for instance) and it sent out its defenses, histamines. It can take anywhere from a day to a month for it to case hives it really just depends on how much the body released and how fast. Hives can also be triggered by food allergies, bug bites, shots, allergies, certain fabrics.. And in chronic cases even a handshake. This is all due to histamines.

The good news is it is nothing to fear, it will go away on its own, calamine lotion will help with itchiness. cool baths help and not over heating the body, heat makes it itchier and worse.

Its most likely not caused by vaccines, it could simply be an irritating fabric, carpet, dust, allergies (idk where all are from but its certainly allergy season here) on the off chance the vaccine did it, it was most likely irritation from the needle plus the vaccination causing further irritation after injected that it caused a minor outbreak of hives. This isn't anything to fear and your child is better off vaccinated (not trying to insult those who dont believe) hives are not deadly, not harmful.. Just really itchy.

I hope I helped 😊 and sorry for the super long reply. If something doesn't make sense feel free to ask me. I'm typing on my phone so I may have spelling errors haha.

Hi Kristalebear1,
Thanks for your response. I was wondering if it was hives as it definitely seems like a reaction or allergy to something, however the blotches aren't raised and they appear and disappear within 15-20mins, and not return again for a couple of days. Does this still sound familiar? It doesn't look like any of the photos of hives I've seen but I suppose that could be because he's still so young.... Anyway thanks for replying as we are worried and really at a loss?! Will show the doc a better photo next time and see what he thinks X
