Re: Chicken pox/mmr vaccine reaction?

He allergist and doctor both said if it was a rash from the shot, it would have been by the injection site not her face.
Our son is allergic to eggs so we delayed the shot for a year until we had read enough studies to show that an allergic reaction would be highly unlikely. Our doctors agreed with yours that it took too long to pop up to be an allergy but it certainly added another level of excitement to the health department's investigation.

Our son's MMR reaction was itchy and he even broke skin when scratching. Felt horrible for the poor guy.
