*any type of infection including a skin infection or open sores;
*congestive heart failure;
*a nerve disorder such as multiple sclerosis, myelitis, or optic neuritis;
*epilepsy or other seizure disorder;
*asthma or other breathing disorder;
*if you have ever had hepatitis B;
*if you are allergic to latex rubber;
*if you have recently been vaccinated with BCG (Bacille Calmette-Guerin); or
