My friend's infant son has had a rash and double ear infection for almost 40 days straight. No meds are helping the ear infection and her elimination diet is not helping him either. After a blood draw it was found he is allergic to peanuts. I believe he is having a reaction to his shots - as this all started right after his last doc appt where he received his shots and because of the thread I read on peanut oil in the vaccine.
I need info to give her on how to detox him. Or if anyone else has any suggestions on how to get this out of his system and hopefully help with the rash. I need it quick, like I said, its been 40 days already!
(I don't want to start a debate on the peanut oil / vaccine or anything else. Just need detox info thanks)

Ps. You can post to inv if you want to ask for info like this with no debates.

Many pharmaceutical and OTC Medications (internal and external), diaper creams, and infant vitamin drops can also contain peanut oil. The label might read arachis or ground nut, but that is peanut.
I have absolutely no idea how to detox an infant, and by the other responses, I'd say nobody else does either.
In my opinion, anybody who has received vaccinations needs to detox regardless of peanut oil. It's terrible he is suffering like that.
I suggest trying to find a naturopath who works with infants. This may not be an easy task, but you may find one who is willing to reach out to their contacts and educators and try to help you with it.
If it was an older child, I would say cut out any questionable diet and environmental stuff and start them on greens, psyllium seed and bentonite clay, but I have no idea how safe that would be for an infant or how you would get it in them.
This is an important factor because in order to stop the ingesting of allergens (if that is the issue), the Mom should cease intake of them.
I would be really curious to find out if you do end up able to get any information on detoxing an infant.
