My mom got a senior flu shot on Thursday, she started getting welts on her chest on Friday. Now they've spread up and on her back?

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with the issue? In general, how has your health been lately?

I am asking for my Mother the welts started Friday the day after her senior flu shot.

Hello I'm Dr Chip

Any itching, wheezing or difficulty swallowing?

Itching and burning
Health Professional: Dr. Chip, Doctor (MD) replied 10 months ago

OK

It's obviously an allergic reaction to the shot

But nothing too serious right now

I'd suggest oral benadryl or Claritin and topical Caladryl lotion for now

But if this continues beyond today she needs to have her doctor check it out since she might need a short course of oral prednisone

Please let me know if you need any more information

What Customers are Saying:

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

Corrie MollPretoria, South Africa

I thank-you so much! It really helped to have this information and confirmation. We will watch her carefully and get her in for the examination and US right away if things do not improve. God bless you as well!

ClaudiaAlbuquerque, NM

Outstanding response time less than 6 minutes. Answered the question professionally and with a great deal of compassion.

KevinBeaverton, OR

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
