Namaste am a mother of 1. 5 months old boy, he received his Penta (DPT,hepB,n Hib) vaccination yesterday on his left thigh. He was also given opv, and Ipv on his right shoulder. was very fussy yesterday as he developed sprain on his left thigh , today morning he was quite okay fussiness was less, he is breastfed normally. Yet he has unusually developed redness in his left feet. Back of his feet appear red filled with blood ,I see fluid moving when touched. he still has sprain in his left thigh, yet still he tries to actively move both his legs n feet. what is this reddish ness in his feet? particularly left feet where he has sprain in his left thigh. I tried cold ice pack for few mins nothing changed. please suggest
