Dr Indu Khosla.. doctor my son is 6months oldn he was given BCG at the time of birth..but there is no visible mark...Is it okk if there's no mark? plz advice on this.

Hi Amreen, as advised by Dr Indu Khosla:

All BCG vaccinations can swell from 6 weeks to 3-4 months and in some cases swelling can increase or decrease upto 7-8 months. No active treatment is required unless its painful or swelling is very high

what if he dosn't get mark or swell even after 7-8months?

Priya Sood no reply🙁
