I belong to another health forum & have been reading about the members & vaccines. The ones that had itching it was in the area of the shot & happened immediately. The itching did not last very long either.
Have you had your iron checked lately? When I am low on iron my skin gets what I call blotchy, affects my hair too. Low iron can cause a lot of different symptoms. I had the Moderna shot, the first one the skin around the injection site was very cold for about 20 minutes, other than a sore arm that was it. The second shot, within 11 hours I was in bed wrapped in a blanket with terrible chills & a low grade fever. I took Tylenol to keep the fever in check. Fortunately this lasted 24 hours & was done.
Thank you. Yes will be checking iron levels, Thyroid and CBC in a week with my follow up with my Endocrinologist. In March my Hgb had gone upto 12.4 with the transfusions but that was before the vaccines.Since the 1st dose set me off on a 3 week flare it is quite likely there could have been a drop in iron again. Will see what the doc has to say about
it. I have also managed to get an appointment with my GP again three weeks from now just in case the Endocrinolgist is not able to figure out what my purple bruise blotches all about
. These look like proper bruising, like when there is bleeding under the skin. But with no injury. Hoping my itching is not a delayed allergic reaction to the vaccine because this is a new one for me. It still seems to come on sporadically and for short whiles now but not as intensely and as long as the day before these bruises appeared and the day I went to the ER to have it checked. My skin doesn't look or feel dry though.
