  • Anon :13 : there is no vaccine for TB. Just a skin test to see if you've been exposed.

    Op: I think it can go either way. My middle DD has horrible ear infections from her first set of vaccines (2 months) to the time she was a year old when she stopped getting so many. No problems from my oldest, and none from my youngest (who isn't vaxxed anyway). Ear pain, and all kinds of skin problems are reported in VAERS ( however wether or not it's actually an ear infection or eczema is unclear. It could be an issue with reporting, or interpreting the data, or it could mean that it's not specific enough to determine. It's always important to remember that TONS of adverse reactions go unreported. TONS. You also have to take into consideration the lifestyle the parents have. There are lots of exposures that can cause these ailments in children.

  • Eczema is autoimmune and some believe that all autoimmune diseases could be side effects of artificially assaulting the immune system. That being said my daughter who has had no vaccines (except hep b at the hospital without my consent) has slight eczema, but so do I and my mother and grandmother and my aunt (she is severe). Eczema is also genetic. I have never seen any studies linking ear infections to vaccines, but have seen studies linking them to formula feeding.

  • my son had eczema and ear infections when he was a baby. his ped. told us that often babies who have eczema will also have problems with allergies is the future...guess son is allergic to damn near everything.

    I also read in some magazine that mothers who have allergies and who deliver c-section are 80% likely to have a baby that has severe allergy problems....guess what, I delivered csection and i have had some allergy probs. My allergy problems are nothing compared to my sons though.
