We do a delayed, selective vaccine schedule. Adam is 12months and received his first dtap on Thursday (the first and only vax he's ever had).
He has had a cold the last week but no fever...his sibs have had the same thing and his sister ended up with bacterial croup and bronchitis (was on a zithromax, steroid, and had an abx shot of rocephin).
This morning he has a 103 degree fever. His cough did seem a little more congested yesterday but he was acting normally and it sounded like drainage rather than chest congestion. The cough today is a little barky but not bad and his breathing is fine.
He doesn't seem like he's in pain anywhere specifically just miserable from the fever but it's hard to tell.
What are your thoughts...does this sound like a secondary bacterial infection, a new virus completely, or from the dtap (his injection site looks great...never had any redness or swelling at all)?
