Yes Rakhi is right. My 9years doesn't have BCG marks but lo has.

Dr. Shilpitha Shanthappa

Bcg vaccination scar can form anytime within 6months. It starts as a boil at the vaccination site then ruptures and heals by forming a scar. If your baby is more than 6 months old then a montoux test will be done to know the immune status and then if necessary vaccination will be repeated. Check with ur pead. Good luck..
