Sick, feverish DD.....MMR or virus?

DD had her MMR last tuesday and yesterday (sun) started with a high temp and general unwellness. She seems to have a sore throat - and is very very dribbly.
Does this sound like a response to the MMR? We're going on holiday later today and just want to check that's all it is rather than a virus (although not sure what difference that would make as she'll still be ill whichever it is....)

NHS Direct says a week to 10 days to get a reaction and this was in 5 days.

My son got ill the next day. Children have been known to have siezures in the doctors office just after having the jab. TBH NHS are all about vaccines, they will deny any connection at all. My DS got very ill after the MMR for weeks and weeks and in the end a homeopath sorted it out.

I would suggest this to you. Make sure your childs diet it 'top notch' for the next few weeks, extra vit c and vit A rich foods or child suppliments. Reduce dairy and wheat for a while. Reduce sugar as it suppresses the immune system.

Get this book.


Also do some reaseach on jabs you might be suprised.

Hope your child gets well soon

My DS got ill about a week after his MMR - very high temperature and a rash. It was gone within 3 days and he was fine.
