Oh no..

I would get it checked out..

I would take a sharpie or pen and draw around the area of swelling.. If the swelling goes pass the line, it may be infected..

Oy! I'd take her in and have that checked. I've never had a kid react like that! I hope she's ok and it goes away soon.

I called the pediatrician and they didn't seem too concerned about it. I forgot to check it this morning though.

CatherineClaire she needs the chicken pox booster to get into school it is a state mandatory thing. It is all just so they don't have a break out of it. It doesn't stop them from getting it, just get it when they are older which is worse.

Poor girl! I'm pretty sure that she can opt out of the vaccine though, you just need to sign a waiver.

I am not sure on that. It is state mandatory. But I might look into it before I give her the 2nd one next year.

I believe a religious excuse is the only acceptable reason for a school, to opt out.
Debatable topic anyway.. She already had the shot, it's kind of a moot topic now.
Not that I worry about us.. but I worry about lurkers stirring the pot again.

All 3 of my girls had it, never had any issues.
However, I just looked it up and there are several articles about children having a golf ball sized lump at the injection site after, it goes away and the kid was fine.
I hope that helps some Cathy. Though I'd keep a close eye on it.

I had a similar reaction to a vaccine when I was in HS. It also gave me a horrible headache, but both went away eventually. As long as she is acting ok, I'm sure that she will be fine!

(I can edit my other post, if you think it will cause problems. )

if you are worried about the size, a weight appropriate dose of benedryl (sp?) is usually very helpful with decreasing the size-when my dog got attacked with bees and swelled up the vet told us with pets and human-any time of shot from the docs, stings or bites with swelling that benedryl is very very helpful. Also, since it has tylenol in it, if it's hurting 30 minutes after the benedryl to give a dose of motrin.

What do I know though?

Thank you Nicole for the advice.

I took her in last night cause it got worse. They said it was just a local reaction but gave her amoxiclin cause he didn't like how it looked.

This morning her arm is normal but now just looks like she has a pimple and it has a head on it. My mom said it had some infection in it and it worked its way out.
