I'd want more information. Has a blood slide been examined by a specialist? ...Read more

S/he may also have a vaccine preventable illness like hemophilus meningitis or blood poisoning.I would take the child to be evaluated and be sure to inform the doc of the lack of vaccines. They can proceed with a more thorough evaluation understanding the extra possibilities. ...Read more
