Q.

Eczema flare up - delay vaccination or not?

Dear Doctor

My son is almost 9 months. His eczema has flared up again with a rash on his cheeks, puffy eyes etc.

Should I delay his 9 months vaccination or is this no reason to delay it?

Kind regards

You should delay your baby's immunisation until his rash is better and his eyes less puffy.
