    It looks like a reaction at the injection site. If he's happy in himself at the mo, leave it for now, then ring docs, on Mon for advice, if u r concerned tho phone NHS direct.

    Did nurse give u info leaflets when Harley had his jab, maybe it says something in there. Also if u check red book it should say which jab he had in which arm.

    He seems happy in himself, I was told if it got bigger than a 50 pence piece then to contact them
    Being hard to the touch is a normal thing
    If you get worried at all take him to docs

    how old is harley now? im just wondering when Colby will get her mmr
    had to cancel her 3rd pneumenococcol because she was unwell and her 4th hib and Mc jabs aswell so not sure when she will get them again but i thought they only got 2 of they pneumenococcol jabs if they are under 2 years old but when i questioned the HV she says its 3 now :wacko:

    Dionne rebecca had 2 jabs too when she got her mmr-it was the pneumococcal 2nd I think.

    Looking back its pretty cruel, they done each arm at the same time.

    Poor Harley looks so sweet, Id of been concerned too, but like Jo says, I was told if bigger than 50p then fone.

    Hope he is ok xxx

    Holly has just had hers done and it is massive and really red looking and rock solid... have rang nhs direct and they only dealing with swine flu and emergency (i don't think it would be classed as an emergency) and can't get through to my gp and waiting for hv to get back to me. have been a bit concerned as she has been vomiting all night and not sure if this is to do with the jab?

    Can you ring NHS direct mrs R? (they cant just say no surely?)
    edit, just read it, duhhhh

    I would call the docs, its probably fine, since Dionnes baby had something similar in the first pic.

    I cant believe they wont help you because swine flu is more 'important'
    thats stupid, what if it was really serious?
    I would try and call them again. have you called your docs since?

    just rang the out of hours again and asked if a doctor could ring me back as although she has been sick and her arm is swollen she is happy enough playing and has no fever.. if he thinks it would be an idea to see her i will take her up!
