Default Minor reaction to Varicella vaccine?

Tommy received his first chicken pox vaccine at his 8 year check up the other week. All was well; no complaints or noticeable reactions. This was 12 days ago.

I was out in the backyard picking up toys when he came out, about half an hour ago, in just his boxers. FWIW- I usually only see him in his boxers in the early mornings when it is still dark out. I noticed a very noticeable knot on his upper left thigh. At first I assumed a bug bite, but he quickly says, "Oh, I've had that since my shot. Remember?". Nearly 2 weeks later and he still has this knot? There's a small, thick mass under the skin, but the area around it is a little red. You can still clearly see the injection site. I asked him if it hurt and he said only when he lays on his leg or he messes with it.

Should I assume an allergic reaction? Or just a normal reaction to the virus? Is it worth calling his pediatrician in the morning? Maybe just to give them a head's up and so they can note it in his file?

Normally I wouldn't find it alarming, but the fact that it's been nearly 2 weeks, and it still looks like this, makes me a bit more concerned.

Sounds like some kind of reaction to me. I would call them and ask them about it.

I plan on calling as soon as they open. I'm not all that worried about anything coming of it, but I do wonder why it's still so prominent two weeks later.

Aiden had a similar reaction to DTAP. His was much more red and lasted a month. I would call but they likely won't do anything about it.

Yeah, I would be more concerned if it was red, but it's just a very noticeable bulge on his thigh.

I shouldn't have googled, though. Quite a few of the long lasting bumps were treated for MRSA as a direct result from the vaccination. It's probably not that, but I'm going to call the office as soon as they open at 8:30.

Yikes! It is probably nothing, but I would talk to the doctor just to be safe.

Just an update.. nearly a month and a half later, he STILL has this same lump. It's no longer bruised, but it's just a knot in his leg that he says only hurts when he's laying on it or puts pressure on it (pushing on it). I'm "only to be concerned if it doesn't go away after a few months"
~~~~~~~
ETA: A month and a half AFTER his vaccine..

If you read the fine print on a few vaccines, this is an uncommon but known possibility. I had a family get the varicella a few months ago and the girl got a lump. It finally reabsorbed or whatever over 2 months later.

WTF?!?!

How did I end up in the thread basement again?!

Yeah, it's been over 2.5 months and he still has it. It's no longer red, and it has shrunk some, but it's still very obviously there.

Another update. 6 months later and he still has it. I'm beginning to think it's a now permanent fixture on his thigh.
