Pediarix - DPT+HB+Polio - every ingredient is causing allergies

Every single listed ingredient causes problems. How many diseases are being caused by the body's natural immune response to a vaccine ingredient?

PEDIARIX is a vaccine indicated for active immunization against diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis, infection caused by all known subtypes of hepatitis B virus, and poliomyelitis.

aluminum hydroxide Contact sensitivity to noninjected aluminum is rare but most commonly occurs during the continual application of aluminum-containing antiperspirants. Aluminum allergy has been reported to be associated with an axillary rash[3] and with hand dermatitis.[4] The more typical route of sensitization, however, is via the absorption of aluminum through hyposensitization injections and vaccines
an unusual or allergic reaction to aluminum hydroxide

Aluminum salts, such as aluminum hydroxychloride, can cause allergic reactions in susceptible individuals. Aluminum hydroxychloride is the most commonly used agent in antiperspirants and is also effective as a deodorant.
aluminum phosphate When TT induces an allergic reaction, the potential causative agents can be TT antigens, thimerosal or aluminum phosphate.
bovine extract Awareness of the considerable incidence of bovine protein allergy in infancy makes it necessary to eliminate cow's milk antigens from the diet in special cases.
Calf serum Most children with beef allergy are also allergic to cow's milk and should avoid the consumption of dairy products. Sensitization to bovine serum albumin is a marker of cow's milk allergy in children with beef allergy. -

Findings in epidemiology and animal experimentation suggest that autoimmunity in insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (IDDM) may be triggered by dietary cow-milk protein, particularly bovine serum albumin (BSA).
formaldehyde Formaldehyde was the seventh most common allergen causing ACD in patch test patients in 2005–2006 (Zug et al., 2009).
glutaraldehyde Do not use Glutarol if you are allergic (hypersensitive) to glutaraldehyde or any of the other ingredients of Glutarol listed in Section 6.
lactalbumin hydrolysate Bacto™ TC Lactalbumin Hydrolysate is the enzymatically hydrolyzed protein portion of milk whey,

In fact, during this trip alone, I’ve had to take 5 athletes off whey protein because of their negative reactions to the stuff – even the so-called “high quality” whey isolates. One athlete, for example, had extreme bloating and gas from their whey protein supplement. Within 30 minutes of drinking their shake, a big, smelly cloud would fill the room and their belly would bloat up to about 125% of its normal size. Another athlete, who has used whey protein during training sessions for the last year, thought – FOR THE ENTIRE TIME – that he had a low-grade, chronic head cold due to the extreme stuffiness he’d experienced during every workout. Another athlete, after every serving of whey protein, would build up a thick coating of mucous in their throat as a result of their protein supplement. And the list goes on… These symptoms, of course, are commonly associated with food allergies and/or food intolerances.

Safety of casein hydrolysate formula in children with cow milk allergy.

Bovine heart extract - "Eight allergens currently dominate the list of food allergies, but a ninth one has been getting more and more attention. In previously unexplained cases of allergic reactions and anaphylaxis — a severe and life-threatening allergic reaction — that were not caused by the most common food allergens, the culprit may have been a meat allergy.

Glucose - "Because the human body depends upon glucose synthesis for cellular energy, corn allergies probably produce the symptoms of a perceived glucose allergy. According to the National Institutes of Health, most commercial sugars—forms of glucose—are derived from corn. Sensitized patients will suffer allergic reactions upon ingesting the glucose compounds in corn syrup, corn starch and more highly processed form of corn."

Sodium chloride - "Here, we present a 37-year-old woman who developed an anaphylactic reaction to normal saline infusion during evaluation for her acute abdominal pain" -

Magnesium sulfate -   hypersensitivity to magnesium is relatively new in the grand scheme of things and wasn’t actually documented in medical journals until 1990.

Cystine - Some individuals may experience an allergic reaction to some forms of supplemental cysteine.

Calcium pantothenate -  an allergic reaction may occur in people who are hypersensitive to calcium D-pantothenate. Symptoms of an allergic reaction to this supplement include severe breathing difficulties, facial swelling, chest tightness and skin rash or hives, reports.

Uracil - People with a previous allergy to tegafur, uracil, 5-fluorouracil

Iron - Allergic contact sensitization to iron

Nicotinic acid, Thiamine, Riboflavin, Pyridoxine, Biotin, Viamin B12, Folic acid - "While it is more commonly accepted that a person can have an allergic reaction to prescription medications, many people don't realize that it also is possible to have an allergic reaction to vitamins. Both multivitamins and specific vitamins such as B and D can cause reactions in some people. The most common signs of a vitamin allergy include hives, facial swelling, skin irritation and vomiting, among others."

casein hydrolysate to which were added various salts, growth factors, and either starch, charcoal, or anionic resins
Casein hydrolysate formula-induced liver dysfunction in a neonate with non-immunoglobulin E-mediated cow's milk allergy

: Severe allergic reactions (rash; hives; difficulty breathing; tightness in the chest; swelling of the mouth, face, lips, or tongue).

exchange resins allergy (disorder)
natural rubber latex Allergy to latex is an increasing health problem.
Neomycin sulfate Before using this product, tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are allergic to neomycin, bacitracin, or polymyxin; or to aminoglycoside antibiotics (e.g., gentamicin, tobramycin); or if you have any other allergies.
polymyxin B You should not use this medication if you are allergic to hydrocortisone, neomycin, or polymyxin B
polysorbate 80 (Tween 80) Polysorbate 80 is a ubiquitously used solubilizing agent that can cause severe nonimmunologic anaphylactoid reactions.

VERO cells, a continuous line of monkey kidney cells A previous study described 2 patients with occupationally induced asthma caused by exposure to monkey.

Laboratory workers, zoo personnel, and veterinarians may encounter severe difficulty with allergy to other animals, including horses, rodents, and less commonly, the large cats (lions and tigers) and primates such as monkeys.
yeast protein It is estimated that one in three Americans experience yeast allergy symptoms after being exposed to the proteins in yeast.
