My son is autistic. He was diagnosed with autism following the MMR vaccination. Although I do not believe that it was the sole reason of his long-term disability I’m personally convinced it was a contributing factor.The primary cause I’m convinced was mercury.
The MMR is, however, a contentious issue. A lot of parents are against allowing their children to be exposed. The reason is that they believe (rightly as well) that giving three live viruses to their children while the immune system is developing is a step too far. Have any of you heard about anyone who has contracted Measles, Mumps and Rubella (German Measles) at the simultaneously in real life?
I’m not sure.
But, it is now apparent there are some possible plans to add a second disease to the list, with being introduced Chickenpox. Of course, I think it really isn’t enough, however that’s my personal opinion. Which do you feel?
The chickenpox virus is an extremely infectious illness which is brought on by the virus that results in itchy, red skin lesions and bumps. It is most often seen on the chest, face, and the upper the limbs. It’s ugly and extremely unpleasant, but it is usually accepted as a condition that is common in children. But not for very long at the very least, if certain doctors are to be believed. Because it’s an avoidable disease, they believe it is a matter of right and wrong.
The virus is spread through airborne droplets that are released through coughs or sneezes . It is less likely to happen to come into direct contact with broken blisters. The main issue with Chickenpox is that you may be infected for days before you notice a rash and this is the time when you’re most infectious. It is possible to feel sick but there are no obvious spots. And since the period of infection lasts until all blisters have scabs formed There is a high possibility of accidentally passing Chickenpox to.
In general, this isn’t an issue, however there are certain risk populations for which the virus can cause problems. Women who are pregnant should be aware of the possibility that it will cause harm to their baby and those with Cancer, HIV or a weak immune system should be cautious.
The look of chickenpox is horrible, and the itching can be painful. Patients are advised to cut their nails short and to wear gloves to prevent scratching their heads off of the blisters. This could cause them to be infected or leave permanent marks. The sales of Calamine lotion are soaring during times of an Chickenpox outbreak around.
I remember that my autistic son was afflicted with Chickenpox at approximately the age of five to six. It was shortly the time we were about to depart on a trip and when we took off, his body was covered with spots. But, the doctor confirmed that there was no sign of infection and we continued to plan our trip.
At that time the man was struggling with social situations, he preferring his own company. did not like crowds, and was extremely sensitive to noise. So for him, the moment of his Chickenpox was a huge benefit. Why? It’s because the one thing my son was able to do besides watching videos was to swimming, and when the t-shirt was removed from his swim trunks and revealed his shabby little body, everyone other swimmers disappeared, and he had the entire pool to him. It was amazing!
But, Chickenpox is not to be taken lightly as, while for the majority of children it’s just uncomfortable the adult form, also known as Shingles and can be extremely painful. My dad was afflicted with it once and said that he thought he would be reunited with his creator. There were areas of spots that ran across his stomach, and all the way to his stomach. I’m not sure if this is an old wives ‘ tale or not, but “they” say if the spots are joined, you will end up dying. Fortunately, his spot didn’t.
Shingles can be a painful itchy rash that only appears for those who have suffered from Chickenpox. It’s because after you’ve contracted the Chickenpox virus, it travels to the root of nerves, then goes into hibernation and then becomes dormant. In rare instances, however it wakes up and is activated, re-entering the body and moving back to the skin through the nerves. There is no reason for this the reason, but it’s extremely unfortunate. I know a friend who suffers from it regularly and associates it with stress.
Shingles isn’t a serious illness, however it is infectious in any contact with someone with it could result in getting Chickenpox. It’s unlikely they’ll catch Shingles however.
Evidently, Chickenpox as well as Shingles can be both painful, and everybody would like to avoid them , if they could however, I’m not convinced that adding more live viruses to an already problematic vaccine is the best option. Why don’t we just stick with the one jab? ( The same is true for Measles, Mumps and Rubella).
The medical community believes it is easier to ensure that children are protected from all illnesses in one place as it cuts down on the expenses as well as the hassle for parents who be forced to leave at work or forget to bring their children back.
