Patient :Hi there, I'm about 9 months into getting allergy shots. I sometimes get a welt that's fairly large, but this one is way bigger and seems to be spreading down my arm. It's been 2 days and I've been putting cortisone cream on it. I switched doctors due to a temporary location change, and he did 4 shots, one for each vial, which I thought would make me have less of a reaction–my usual doctor combines 2 vials into one so I only get two shots. Should I go to the ER or do you think I'm ok?
Welcome to ATD. Thank you for the query.
Please mention the drug content of the shots you received, associated symptoms and a photograph of the welt and revert back to me for further assistance.
