I had to get an allergy shot on Tuesday and I have been sore ever since. It’s rather bothersome. Rarely do I get a reaction, but all week I have had this swollen red spot about 4 inches in diameter where I got my shot. It’s feverish and I feel like I’ve got a toothache in my elbow, wrist, and shoulder.

I called the doctor and they said to take benedryl. It really has not done much, other than stop the itching. I think I’ll have to take a lower dose next week. Yuck.

  • Thanks for bringing back memories….for about 10 years, as a child, I received allergy shots at the least once a month (sometimes once every week or oevery other week). Definitely not good times.
