I received the MMR vaccine...
I received the MMR vaccine after delivering my baby. Could this be a reaction from the vaccine? It was about 5 weeks ago and have been having outbreaks since then all over my body. I assume that even though the vaccine is live and if I had a reaction to it I wouldn’t be contagious?

they are very itchy...a dermatologist told me that they look to be hives. Likely an allergic reaction from something I was given during my hospital stay for my csection. One of those things was the MMR vaccine. Everything else I had before with my first csection.

No fever, a little dry
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
they have spread over my whole body, they only thing that clears them up and stops them is Prednisone

Thank you for the information provided.

These look like allergic reaction as they respond as you mentioned to Prednisone.

These are not urticarial . This is called Pityriasis rosea like eruption to Vaccines which is seen on our clinical practice.

You can treat it with topical application of:

Aveeno skin repair cream daily on the area

Clean the area with Cetaphil cleansing lotion for sensitive skin .

Use 1 % Hydrocortisone cream on the area twice a day for 10 days.

take Claritine once at night for 10 days in case of itching.

Please do let me know if you have any further queries.

this is from the MMR vaccine likely? Also - how long does it take to go away? It’s been 5 weeks already.Would I be contagious if from the vaccine?

This can take 5 to 12 weeks to go away .

This is a reactive inflammation . It is not contagious

Customer reply replied 4 months ago
normal to be over the whole body?

Yes , since it is a reactive inflammation it does affect the entire body

It is an immunological reaction . The defence system of your body over reacts and hence this erupts on the body.

It is temporary and nothing to worry

Do you Agree with what I have mentioned ?

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.
