Eczema + Smallpox Vax = Possible Death

Posted by   + Show Post

OK, OK, I know that Wikipedia is not the best source of information, but here's what it says about eczema and the smallpox vaccination:

Those with eczema should not get the smallpox vaccination due to risk of developing eczema vaccinatum, a potentially severe and sometimes fatal complication.[14]

DS1 was diagnosed with eczema last week, so here's another reason NOT to vaccinate, right?!

I found this... Supposedly there's a new smallpox vaccine that won't cause eczema vaccinatum. I don't know that I would trust that, though. Then again, I don't really think any vaccine is safe, so...

Quoting GoodyBrook:


Too bad it's a pay-per-view article, right?! 

In noticed that the article was submitted into 1957.  I wonder what has changed in the vaccines since then, and if it seen as a concern today.

Quoting mjrex87:

DD has eczema so I decided to look that up. And OMG I found this....

 1) No child with atopic eczema or other skin disorder should be vaccinated. 2) No child should be vaccinated if any member of his family has eczema or other skin disorder. 3) Parents of children with eczema should be notified at the onset of the disease of the danger from vaccination contact. 4) If a sibling of a child with atopic eczema is vaccinated, he must be completely separated from that child for at least 21 days. 5) Forms used by state and local health departments for parents' consent to vaccination should include an appropriate warning of the contraindications. 6) Eczema vaccinatum should be a reportable disease. 7) Patients recently vaccinated must be excluded from pediatric wards containing patients with atopic eczema, other diseases of the skin, burns or healing surgical incisions. 8) Vaccination may be recommended at 2 months of age, especially for babies from strongly allergic families.


Umm...Why is that not common knowledge??? It seems pretty important to me!

But unvaccinated kids are dangerous right, smh.

Isn't it true they can skip that one with kids in the house? Do they have to get boosters?
My bf is army, and I'm avoiding the vaccine conversation since he has no option. He hates there's aluminum in deodorant, so I'm thinking the "we won't vaccinate our future children" conversation won't be that hard.
If all fails I'll pull the, I'm medically trained, you're not, I'll make medical decisions.


Quoting emmy526:

yes, they do...there was a case of vaccinia smallpox not long ago in cali... a vaxed sailor gave smallpox to another person after vaccination



Quoting kitty8199:

They do in the military still don't they? Don't they get everything?



Quoting Ichthus:

Smallpox is not a disease that is vaccinated for anymore, but vaccines do contribute to eczema. No telling what problems vaccinating may have further caused your ds, so yay for no vaxing! :)

WHAT THE FU*K?!?! My son has eczema and do you think his peds have ever mentioned this? Hell no! Just more proof that doctors are just as ignorant as anyone else, or that they're here to fill their pocket books... SMH.
