My son is 2 years old and has been diagnosed with PDD-NOS. I have vaccinated my son at all appropriate times. My question is: Should children in general be vaccinated when they are ill? I believe in vaccinations they save many lives but I'm wondering if any other parents had their children vaccinated while they were sick. I also wonder how many children are taking antibiotics and get vaccinated during that time. Are there any guidelines to vaccinating children? If so, are they being followed? Why do doctors press for vaccinations on time even if a child is sick with a cold? Read Can PDD-NOS be caused by a vaccination?
My 2-year-old son has what is called a corneal dermoid. He goes to an eye specialist every six months for an eye exam and has his eyes dilated, etc. His doctor recommends having the dermoid removed before he gets old enough to be in school. The dermoid does bother his eye, and he rubs it from time to time. We had decided to go ahead and have it removed now while he is still young. The problem is my son will not sit still -- he screams and kicks during the exam and the vision test. What can I do to help him get over this reaction? The vision test did not turn out because he would not leave the electrodes in place. Read How can I help my 2-year-old stay calm during an eye exam?
