Write-up: Within 72 hours of receiving the vaccine, I began experiencing itchiness in random locations on my body. However, it was intermittent and not too severe - initially. The itchy rash would pop up and subside, until Weds May 26th. In the middle of that night (5/26) I awoke with the most severe itching and discomfort that I''ve ever experienced, and it was in spots across my arms, legs, abdomen, inner thighs, underarms, soles of feet, wrists, and elsewhere. The next morning (Thursday 5/27) I began calling dermatology offices and clinics hoping to secure a Doctor''s appointment ASAP to get a diagnosis and hopefully some relief. I was able to secure an appointment at Immediate Care for later that morning. At that time I received a steroid shot in my arm, and began a cycle of Prednisone to address the rash. It persisted and was very uncomfortable for the following three days, but thankfully began to subside due to the steroids by Monday 5/31. I would like to stress that I''ve had no known allergies in my life, and that this was the most extreme rash and itching I''ve ever experienced. If I had it to do over again, I would not get the vaccine.
