Has anyone had any experience with the MMR vaccination causing immune/idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura. It presents as red pinprick rash under skin which is non blanching. Unexplained bruising. It causes body to destroy its own platelets. Thanks.

Maybe people don't make the connection. Have you tried posting in the area of children's health generally. If kids have ITP the parents might not realise its an adverse reaction to a vaccine as it's not well publicised.
