Very : Very important. This is demonstrated by the recent outbreaks of measles in unimmunized children. The mortality from measles is about 2%. The adverse reaction to the measles vaccination about 1:100, 000. You can surely do the math. No studies have confirmed the folk lore that immunizations cause autism. Following that scare, there were many deaths in children who were not protected against pertussis. Anyone doubting the efficacy of vaccination should visit an old grave yard and see how many children died in infancy in the first half of the last century before antibiotics and vaccines were available to children. ...Read more

Your child is exposed to numerous allergens every single day, and it's likely these are the triggers. Work with an allergist to determine what your child's triggers are, and talk with your pediatrician about maximizing skin care to avoid flare-ups of the eczema. ...Read more
