BCG stamp

‘Tis the third day yet her BCG twice-stamped skin is still swollen. 😦 The mark of 18 (!!) needles. 😦 All other vaccinations were on her thighs and only single needle at that save for BCG that has to be on the left arm and stamped. Supposedly this is to avoid keloid formation/scarring of the injection site. Hopefully it really doesn’t leave her a lifetime mark like the ones I and my brothers have.


This by the way is the stamp. From Wikipedia.

      Exactly David! Albeit I’ve been reading about this vaccine recently and it seems this method is supposed to be less painful. I saw the fluid and it’s quite viscous hence single needle injection must be really painful.
