Can I give my baby paracetamol after immunisation?
Yes, you can give your baby paracetamol (also known as acetaminophen) after immunization if they are experiencing mild discomfort, fever or pain at the injection site.
However, it is important to consult with your healthcare provider before giving any medication to your baby, especially if your baby is less than 3 months old or has any medical conditions.
When giving paracetamol to your baby, make sure to follow the dosage instructions carefully and use a suitable infant paracetamol formulation. You can also ask your healthcare provider or pharmacist for guidance on the correct dosage based on your baby’s weight and age.
It is important to note that while paracetamol can help alleviate some of the discomfort associated with immunization, it should not be given as a routine prophylactic measure, and should only be used when needed to manage specific symptoms or side effects.
