In a similar vein to the other thread that is circulating (no pun intended) Though, this isn't theoretical. I just found out about someone who has chicken pox. I have an unvaxxed 19 month old and I'm wondering your thoughts on whether I should try to expose her to it or not. I'm leaning to no, because it is hard to imagine trying to get her sick! (Though, I THOUGHT I'd be the person going to a pox party. . . ) Partly, I'm thinking she is too young. Partly because we are dealing with an ongoing retracted eardrum problem. Given the relationship with the child with chickenpox, it would be awkward, anyway. But, I'm wondering if there are any compelling reasons to expose her. I had chickenpox as a baby, and can't remember the experience, but was told it was a pretty bad case and quite unpleasant. But, no lasting damage other than a couple of scars.
Anectdotally, the child with chicken pox is fully vaxxed and I can't go into it, but I highly suspect that she has been vaccine damaged. (Serious symptoms and timeline are classic.) Sadly ironic and tragic.
