Q.

Bcg

I have just noticed the pimple that was left from my babies BCG vaccine appears to have a red ring around it and looks a little angry. He is almost seven months. Is it normal to still have flare ups of this injection site. Do I leave it or get someone to look at it?

The BCG vaccination may take ages to heal so this is not unusual.As long as the vaccination spot is not painful or unusually warm then there is no need for concern.
