Re: I think My Ds is having a Reaction to vaccinations

Eczema is a vaccine reaction. Our pediatrician takes a more holistic approach than most doctors and she sites eczema as a reason to slow down on the vaccine schedule. I believe Dtap is actually 3 vaccines so basically he got a total of 4 in one day and that is kind of a lot. Each parent has to do what they feel is best when it comes to vaccines but if it were my kid I'd slow the schedule down even more. Perhaps your LO was fighting a cold or something when he went in and his body reacted differently this time. For furture vaccines you can up their vitamin c levels a couple of weeks before and after the shot. Make sure to mention this reaction to your pediatrician.
