My 4 month old granddaughter broke out in hives all over her body 24 hrs after receiving her shots. Took her to dr, he put her on predesone for 4 days. Question is what do we do about future vaccinations? Should she go to allergist to find out which of the 5 vaccinations she received she is allergic to?

My daughter had this issue. My doctor just advised us to give her benadryl before her shot next time. It worked for her, but I would definitely ask the doctor, as that was a very long time ago, they probably have better solutions these days.

I agree with Jodi. Speak to your doctor first but finding what she is allergic to doesn't hurt either.

I would have a conversation with her doctor. Most vaccinations can be given separately, so having them done one at a time may be an option. An allergist would be a good idea because it may simply be one of the ingredients in the vaccines, and that particular ingredient may be avoidable. For example, some vaccines contain an egg protein and a child with an egg allergy may react to it.
