Write-up: After getting the Johnson & Johnson shot at 3:15PM on Saturday (I did pass out at the vaccine clinic approx 2 minutes after receiving the vaccine and had to be escorted to a room to lay down) I developed chills, fever, and aches that night, but that''s not what I''m reporting. Sunday night, I developed painful red spots on my right inner labia. Monday morning, they had multiplied and darkened. I went in and saw my gynecologist, at 2:00PM. By that time they had worsened again. She could not immediately identify it, but swabbed it to test for herpes. She also prescribed an anti-viral, a rotating dose of OTC 600 ibuprofen and 500mg tylenol, and that I should pick up Orajel for topical numbing. By Wednesday, the herpes test came back negative (as I expected, having never had herpes), and the spots had grown in size and turned into black and grey ulcers that were shedding with necrosis and were extremely painful. In addition, I was experiencing near exhaustion. Dr. diagnosed them as Lipsh?tz ulcers. A severe immune response to the vaccine. In addition to the antiviral, she prescribed a steroid to help quiet the immune response and a few days worth of Hydrocodone to help with the very acute pain. As of writing this on 4/20/2021, I am still not fully recovered, although Dr. believes it will be cleared up completely in the next couple of days.
