Write-up: The patient called an hour after receiving the shot stating she could feel her throat swelling slightly and having a feeling of numbness throughout her throat and tongue. She said she had no trouble breathing, swallowing fluids or any chest pain. It was recommended to take 2 benadryl tablets now (4:45pm) and 2 tablets before she goes to bed. I had the father get on the phone as well, tell educate him on monitoring her breathing. She was urged to see a doctor or call 911 if breathing issues start or swelling gets worse. I asked her to call the store first thing tomorrow morning when we open to see if there was any relief from the benadryl or if symptoms got worse.
