I write today because On January 20, I received my first Pfizer covid vaccination. I have felt no side effects but when I read the story of the doctor who died of bleeding after that vaccination, I became concerned because I do get minor petechiae from the blood thinner and then yesterday (1/25) I noticed a petechiae different from the rest. It was on my back and was bigger than the few tiny pinpoint ones from the medication. I am wondering if the vaccine made the difference and if my platelet count is going down. Is it possible that the vaccine might interact with blood thinners and create Thrombocytopenia? I have never heard of that disease before, but I think it can exist unknown or maybe be started by the vaccine. I will be watching for any additional petechiae, but would it be good to get a platelet test to see if something has gone wrong? The doctor with zero platelets, no symptoms and death by bleeding has caused me concern and if blood thinners, my eczema or undiagnosed Thrombocytopenia cause issues for vaccines, that information would be good to know. I am a 76 year old male in generally good health. My fitbit walking target is at least 4 miles/day and I usually reach that. At 5? 9? and 172 pounds I enjoy golf weekly when winter is over. Two issues do exist. Twenty seven months ago while searching for the cause of some PVCs the doctors put in a stent and scarred a diagonal artery causing what they said was a heart attack. Recovery was quick and subsequent tests indicate the heart was healed and working fine. I have no heart symptoms, but since then have been on first Brillinta and now Clopidorgrel (Plavix) plus baby aspirin. Second, last August I was diagnosed with eczema which might be psoriasis which I think is autoimmune related. It is annoying at times but the prescription cream helps.

Vaccine kicked my Restless Leg Syndrome into high gear, making it impossible to sleep. Did not sleep for 2 nights in a row, until finally the reaction started to subside. Also, the vaccine gave me a minor case of hives rash. This has not subsided yet. But the RLS is NOT a minor problem, it is major, to me.

It was itchy like crazy; both of his arms are as stiff and achy at the top; both of his arms are as stiff and achy at the top; This is a spontaneous report from a contactable consumer (patient). A 76-year-old male patient received bnt162b2 (BNT162B2, Solution for injection) via an unspecified route of administration on an unspecified date (Batch/Lot Number: EL9263) at single dose for covid-19 immunisation. The patient's medical history and concomitant medications was not reported. The patient had two side effects and the second shot would be coming up and he was nervous about what he should do. The main side effect is that they put a band aid on where injection was to protect site. The next morning, he took it off and on the edge of the band aid, there was a red dot about 1/8 to 1/4 inch around. It was itchy like crazy, he did not scratch it. That dot was staying there. The doctor told him not to do anything to it and just put a little bacitracin on it. He did not provide any information for the Bacitracin such as a dose, lot or expiration. The next side effect was both of his arms which was stiff and achy at the top. The injection arm feels exactly like the right, but only the left one got the injection. He would like to know if he should be concerned with second dose or not. The outcome of the events was unknown.

I had the second shot at the same place on 2-11-21. At the time, I only had soreness of the left arm at the injection site and virtually no other symptoms except a mild headache for a few hours. However, during the month or so between the vaccines and post-vaccine period, I developed pain in both shoulders with moderate-severe rotator cuff symptoms. This was pain in reaching in almost any direction. Also, I began to notice heaviness in both upper legs, front and back, which in a week or so progressed to tiredness and then to achiness, and finally to pain when I would squat, bend over, or get up from a chair. I have never had either symptom before.

He received first Pfizer COVID vaccination at noon time this past Thursday 25Feb in a vaccination clinic set up, the following day Friday the 26 he woke up the next morning and entire body was so sore from head to toe and could hardly get himself out of bed, but when he got up, he was having difficulty walking, so anyway he stayed in bed all day on 26 and 27. He initially had a slight temperature, some chills, slight cough, runny nose and those symptoms except for the cough seem to have resolved, what hasn't resolved is about every 30 or 40 minutes or so he had been having to urinate ever since 26Feb2021 night, his mouth has been constantly very dry. Still urinating every half hour 45 minutes and ongoing. Mouth has been very dry and had a couple of areas where it seems like maybe he had bit his lip or something, maybe when he was sleeping. It was nothing like that in mouth anymore but the mouth is still constantly so dry like dehydrated and no matter how much of fluid he drank that doesn't seem to help it and what in fact has also caused was on yesterday morning he had been a little constipated on Friday night and then yesterday morning had a severe case of diarrhea. Now he had not had another bowel movement since yesterday morning as no appetite and feeling so lousy, and so tired and fatigued. He had been feeling even much worse since getting the vaccine. He still feels very fatigued, very sore all over, very tired, still have the slight cough and he would say that's about it. Outcome of events for cough, pain and tiredness was not recovered and for the rest of the events it was unknown. No follow-up attempts are possible. No further information is expected.

Following Dose 1, Right Arm became sore at injection site for 4 days, at which time Right armpit became very tender touch and was swollen about size of silver dollar, approx. 1/2 inch thick. Soreness at injection site subsided over the next 17 days, but tenderness in armpit only diminished slightly. Following Dose 2, Right Arm was once again sore at injection site for about 4 days, but tenderness to the right armpit became more pronounced, with swelling increasing to the size of a hockey puck. Size of swelling was easily visible to the eye. Armpit became more tender to the touch, and has diminished only slightly in size,, as of this reporting. Mass remains soft to the feel, but easily defined in size and location. I have taken OTC pain killers to help with the discomfort. Will continue to monitor its progress, unless notified otherwise. Do not anticipate seeing my physician at this point. Have consulted the Web, and have noted that this is a lesser side effect of this vaccine, if swelling remains localized to the injection site. Thought I should report this side effect only because of the size of the swelling that occured.

Almost immediately felt swelling at the injection site, which I felt as being normal. Next day when I woke up felt a slight headache , abnormal vision issues that included sparkles, blurred vision and a general tiredness. Did not feel refreshed as I normally do when I wake up in the morning. As the day went on sparkles and vision issues remained and headache got worse. Went to bed earlier than normal and next day when woke up the symptoms got worse, I felt like I had a migraine. Vision issues persisted. Laid down around 11AM and took a nap and when I woke up I noticed a blotch in my left eye reminiscent of the shape of a fish (looked like a shark) and it had different colors. Bright yellow and black almost kind of an iridescent green and orange. The shape was still just the colors were different. I panicked and called the optometrist and explained what happened. They wanted to see me right away. I was able to be seen in the afternoon. They looked at it, did two tests and came with the diagnosis of a branch retinal artery occlusion. I visited my neuro- ophthalmologist on 01/28 and he confirmed the diagnosis had previously given. He then ordered fedrate and a couple of other tests. They also did a visual acuity in the left eye (20/30) and color vision (8/8 normal) and color plates and intraocular pressure (16 OS)

Itchy pink splotches head to toe became noticeable irritation during the second night after the vaccination, confirmed in the morning. Went to urgent care the following Monday afternoon. Consultation verified the symptoms. Doctor concluded that the timing indicated a reaction to the vaccination rather than a reaction to the penicillin that I had been taking several days for a UTI. I have never had any problems with any of the medications or supplements that I take regularly. The doctor prescribed Prednisone, Cetirizine, and Tagamet, which I am currently taking. There has not yet been any reduction in my extensive symptoms.

mental fog/bit of fog; foggy; Nausea; very sleepy; tired; Injection site pain/pain to the injection site; This is a spontaneous report from a contactable consumer (patient). A 77-year-old male patient received the first dose of BNT162B2 (PFIZER-BIONTECH COVID-19 VACCINE, lot number and expiration date were not reported), via an unspecified route of administration, administered in the left arm on 19Feb2021 08:40 at a single dose for COVID-19 immunisation. Medical history included atrial fibrillation (Afib) about 10 years ago (2011). Concomitant medication included unspecified medications including blood thinner and Afib medications. The patient takes 6 medications: some of those medications for 40 years, some for a bit less. There were a couple more added for his heart because 10 years ago he had a case of Afib and the doctor who has now retired took him from 3 meds to 6; and has had no issues for the last 10 years. The patient had his first dose on 19Feb2021 at a clinic and was due/scheduled for his second on 12Mar2021. The patient had severe reactions to the first one so he wanted to know if he should accelerate second shot or stay within three weeks. His reaction was for the first two weeks, he had severe nausea, etcetera, which was getting better that week. He gives 20-minute presentations each morning and the participants in the presentation were nice about it but they say that the patient has fog and thought he should see if he should go in sooner as they were worried about him. His only symptoms remaining after two weeks of severe reactions was that he was very sleepy. All that was left was being tired and mentally in a bit of fog (also reported as mental fog). The patient only had pain to the injection site for a day and was not an issue, then it didn't take long for him to start getting extremely tired and have nausea. He says all he knows was that from the sheet listing severe reactions, he had every one during the first couple weeks (unspecified), though he never had a fever. He says this week he felt better and he was starting to eat, this was not normal for him to be tired all the time, but at least he was not sick. He says he didn't treat the pain or nausea, because he was healthy as a horse, and has no problems with a vaccine, shots don't bother him other than having soreness the first day. The patient was just foggy and tired. The patient was recovering from nausea. The patient recovered from injection site pain on 20Feb2021. The patient has not recovered from mental fog/bit of fog and tired. The outcome of the remaining events was unknown. Information on the lot/batch number has been requested.

As a result of the event the patient visited his Dermatologist (this was the same Dermatologist he has been going to for years. He last visited the dermatologist September or October and was given the regular cream). The caller told the dermatologist it might be due to the Pfizer Covid Vaccine, and the dermatologist said it may be due to stress. Patient stated he is not under stress or stressed out. Caller states he uses different creams, but clarifies the one his dermatologist gave him as treatment is called Betamethasone Dipropionate cream 0.05. Caller states he was given him 3 tubes of cream because the caller guesses his psoriasis is so bad. Caller reported a little improvement, stating it doesn't itch as much he guesses because of the cream. He sees his leg is all red, almost looks like shingles. He clarifies the psoriasis is on both legs and calves, but one calf is not as bad; on his thigh, on the side, and one patch is on the back of his thigh. He has had Psoriasis on both legs as years went on but very little. The cream helped out, also sun and salt water,, but he's never seen it this bad. Everything broke out like crazy. No Follow-up attempts are needed. No further information is expected. The clinical outcome of the events was recovering while almost looks like shingles was unknown. No Follow-up attempts are needed. No further information is expected.

He is an exceptionally active person, and excavation construction worker and still works and so he thought it was just a pulled muscle. Then a few days later, pain was awful and area was sensitive to touch and it looked a little swollen and he had nothing else. A couple days later he kept saying it bothered him and it was all the way around to his side. It was fine at first it started with a little rash and so he went to the doctor today and diagnosed with shingles. Therapeutic measures were taken as a result of shingles which included valacyclovir (Was given Valacyclovir 1 gram tablet to take three times daily to help the shingles).

He had his flu shot in Sep2020. Concomitant medication included ramipril taken for probably at least 15 years, started in his 60s; atorvastatin taken for probably at least 15 years, started in his 60s. He believes this is the generic product for Pfizer Lipitor; acetylsalicylic acid (ASPIRIN CHILDREN) taken for probably at least 15 years, started in his 60s; ascorbic acid, tocopheryl acetate, xantofyl, zeaxanthin, zinc (AREDS) (also reported as "Advanced Retinol Eye Study Disease") for eye vitamin/To maintain good eye health; bioflavonoids nos, lecithin, quercetin, ubidecarenone (CO-Q-10 PLUS) taken for probably at least 15 years, started in his 60s for Heart supplement; and unspecified multivitamin taken daily and probably taken all his life, all ongoing. This patient reported he was administered his first dose of Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine on 11Jan2021. There were no side effects; his right arm was barely sore where injection administered on 11Jan2021. Onset probably about 19:05-20:05 and he had recovered completely by the next morning when he woke. He had no discomfort during the night, no pain or throbbing, he felt very normal the next morning. He clarified that he has no medical conditions, no flu or illnesses of any other kind. He had his last annual physical with PCP in Oct2020; he has a twice yearly check-up with the Cardiologist that will be coming up soon. Stated that today is the 21st day and he is scheduled to get his second dose at 3:00pm. He asked how the incremental immunity builds up percentage wise after getting the first and second dose of Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine. He asked if there is any restriction or limitation on taking products like Tylenol, Advil or Aspirin before getting the Pfizer COVID-19 Vaccine; and if those products are ok to use to potentially treat side effects from the Pfizer COVID-19 Vaccine such as if patient has sore arm or something; and how soon after the second dose side effects can kick in-he believes the briefing documents he was given for the Pfizer COVID-19 Vaccine said 2-14 days. He asked this particularly because he has an hour drive home after this second dose and wanted to know what to anticipate before attempting to drive home. His wife thought someone told her not to take any Tylenol, Advil or Aspirin before getting the Pfizer COVID-19 Vaccine which they had not heard of elsewhere, and saw no mention of that in the briefing documents given for the Pfizer COVID-19 Vaccine. The with outcome of the event was recovered on 12Jan2021.

There was a significant drug interaction with Efudex Cream that I was applying topically to a pre-cancerous 2-cm-diameter lesion on my left shin. On the day of my first Pfizer shot, the Efudex treated lesion was progressing normally from the desquamation (scabbing and shedding of epithelial scales) to the erosion stage (starting to form a shallow 2.5-cm-diameter ulcer). Starting about Saturday 30 January (three days after the first Pfizer shot) and slowly increasing for the next four days, the Efudex-treated ulcer became deeper, the peripheral 12-cm-diameter skin became redder, and the left foot and ankle became increasingly swollen. My RN-wife and I (a former medical-research physicist) began research andChronic health conditions: nasal polyps, precancerous bleeding actinic keratoses, Cramp-Fasciculation Syndrome (leg & foot cramps), early macular degeneration bilateral, hearing loss bilateral. Chronic health conditions: nasal polyps, precancerous bleeding actinic keratoses, Cramp-Fasciculation Syndrome (leg & foot cramps), early macular degeneration bilateral, hearing loss bilateral.DVERSE EFFECTS, TREATMENT, AND OUTCOME: discovered that Efudex should not be given concurrently with any of a long list of immunizations. This is an Efudex problem that should gain another immunization onto that list. Being within a week of finishing the Efudex regimen, we monitored the Efudex-treatment area and the peripheral area carefully. On Thursday 4 Feb (eight days after the first Pfizer shot), the ulcer began unusual drainage, the 12-cm-diameter peripheral area became inflamed, and swelling of the left ankle and foot increased to almost skin-tight - I can upload photos if you need. Time for immediate action. My excellent Dermatologist stopped Efudex and started me on Bactrim by mouth for 10 days, and Gentamicin topical antibiotic on the ulcerated central area and Triamcinolone topical corticosteroid on the peripheral and swollen areas for three weeks. Good choices. Improvement was immediate and continued improving for the next three weeks. By the time of the second Pfizer shot on 24 February, the central area was healing well, in the late-reepithelialization stage (regrowth of epithelial tissue that now formed a completely-covering scar tissue with no oozing), and with all inflammation and swelling completely gone. After the second Pfizer shot (taken 20 days after stopping Efudex), there were zero adverse effects of any kind. NOTE: There were absolutely zero other adverse effects of any kind throughout the entire series: no chills, fever, headache, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, change in pulse or blood pressure (120/70 range), loss of taste or smell, sore throat, cough, lung congestion, fatigue, feeling of being unwell, shortness of breath, injection-site swelling or redness, hives, swelling of face, decreased kidney function, or other adverse cardiovascular, neurological or pulmonary effects. There was no additional joint pain above my normal osteoarthritis. After both shots, I felt a slight normal-range injection-site soreness for the next few hours, but no site swelling, rash, redness, or other problem. We recommend that this immunization be added to the Efudex ‘proscribed or warned' list.

A little over a week ago I was admitted to a local hospital having been diagnosed with Guillain?Barré syndrome, a debilitating condition where the body?s auto immune system attacks the nervous system resulting in peripheral numbness in one?s hands, feet and legs. This condition was diagnosed by a neurologist. Following his diagnosis, I spent 8 days in the Hospital and was treated for 5 days with a daily dose of 400ml of immune globulin (IVIG) to rebuild the damage to my nervous system. On April 10, I began to feel the onset of Guillain Barré syndrome as the bottoms of my feet suddenly began to tingle and feel numb. The next day I tripped while returning our waste management garbage cans to our garage. Fell face forward onto the driveway and was bruised pretty bad. The next day my BP zoomed to 224/160. 911 was called and I was taken to our local hospital fearing and thinking that I was having a heart attack. I spent 4 days in the hospital being checked for a possible heart attack and all the while my Guillain Barré syndrome was progressing undiagnosed. I was discharged and instructed to see a neurologist for the tingling and numbness in my hands, legs and feet. Within 15 minutes of the neurologist consult, a few days following my discharge, I was told I had Guillain Barré syndrome and get to a hospital. I left his office and went straight to the emergency room and I spent the next 8 days there and was discharged Tuesday, 4 May 2021. Several hospital neurologists treating me believed the vaccination triggered the syndrome as do I. It's not being widely reported even though there have been several Facebook postings of people saying the same thing as me.

On March 2, he woke up feeling bad and had a fever of 102.7. He took tylenol and liquids all day and the fever came down to around 100. The next morning he woke up complaining of excruciating pain in his left arm (site of the injection). He couldn't stand to have anything touch it, couldn't move it and couldn't sleep because of the pain. The next morning he woke up very weak, wasn't able to speak clearly, wasn't making sense. He had a telemedicine appointment scheduled that morning for another matter. The doctor took one look at him and said we should have him evaluated asap. I took him to the emergency room at Hospital. They did some tests and said he was septic and immediately put him into the ICU. He was started on IV antibiotics while the blood cultures were growing out. It was determined that the bacteria was Strep G but they were unable to identify the source. He was put on a ventilator and an echo cardiogram was done. It was believed that the source of the infection was his pacemaker and I was told the pacemaker would have to be removed. They couldn't do it at that hospital. He was transferred to another hospital. The doctors at that hospital determined the pacemaker was not the source. It was believed by some doctors that the source of infection was the injection site. The infection was cleared from his body and the ventilator was removed after 2 weeks. He lived another 2 weeks but never was able to recover. Until the day he was put on paliative care, he expressed pain in the arm where he had received the vaccination. He died at 5:30 a.m. on April 1, 2021.

Skin started itching everywhere; Skin started feeling sunburned everywhere; Some little raised bumps on his stomach like a little area of that itched/On his stomach he had the little welts that started to itch; This is a spontaneous report from a contactable consumer or other non hcp. A 78-years-old male patient received bnt162b2 (PFIZER-BIONTECH COVID-19 mRNA VACCINE, Formulation: Solution for injection), dose 2 via an unspecified route of administration, administered in Arm Left on 17Feb2021 11:00 (at the age of 78 years old) (Batch/Lot Number: EN6201; Expiration Date: Jun2021) as single dose for COVID-19 immunisation. Medical history included allergies. The patient's concomitant medications were not reported. Previously the patient received bnt162b2 (PFIZER-BIONTECH COVID-19 mRNA VACCINE, Formulation: Solution for injection), dose 1 via an unspecified route of administration, administered in Arm Left on 21Jan2021 (Batch/Lot Number: EL3249; Expiration Date: Jun2021) as single dose for COVID-19 immunisation and experienced itching all over his body. States he took Benadryl regularly for the side effects but after 4-5 hours of taking the Benadryl, his symptoms returned. After a few days the itchiness resolved. States he went to allergist and received a prescription for prednisone, epipen and Benadryl with instructions for use by allergist. He was instructed to take Benadryl prior to the 2nd shot of the vaccine. He was instructed to take Benadryl if reaction post vaccine shot was mild and instructed to use epipen and call if he had a bad reaction. Also instructed to take Prednisone if Benadryl was not working. Received his second vaccine shot yesterday and, in the afternoon, developed a sun burning sensation on his skin in addition to itchiness and a welt on his stomach. The patient took Benadryl and within 30 mins symptoms resolved. He had had to take Benadryl regularly (every 4-5 hours) as his symptoms returned about 4 hours after a dose of Benadryl. States he has not needed the epipen or prednisone and would like to know if Benadryl deactivates effectiveness of vaccine. The patient wanted Pfizer to conduct clinical trials/have information on how antihistamines may interfere with the vaccine and asked if there is a blood test he can take after a period after the second vaccine dose to determine effectiveness of the vaccine. Concerned about his reaction as wondering if he should avoid the vaccine if a booster is indicated down the road and especially if his reaction is consider serious reactions and asked about the half-life. This consumer called to ask if Benadryl he has taken would affect the efficacy of the Pfizer COVID-19 Vaccine that he has been administered. He has allergies so he took a Benadryl approximately 2 hours before being administered the vaccine around 11:00. After second dose was administered, he felt ok, he waited on site for about 30 minutes for monitoring like you are supposed to. About 2 hours after vaccine was administered his skin started feeling sunburned everywhere and skin started itching everywhere. In response to events he took another Benadryl. About 30 minutes after taking Benadryl the events went away. About 4-5 hours later the events came back the same way as when they started. He had some little raised bumps on his stomach like a little area of that that itched. His body itched all over but it felt horrible sunburned. He took another Benadryl and in about 30 minutes the events kind of cleared up, it was good. About 4 hours after that the Benadryl wore off, the events came back so he took another Benadryl. Today the events are ongoing but a lot milder than it was on 17Feb2021. It seemed like every 4-5 hours the events would come back but milder today. His question is since he had to take Benadryl or he would have been itching all over the place; and he did not want to go to emergency room which he probably would have had to if he had not taken the Benadryl; and he would like an answer, not a maybe; since he had to take Benadryl and taken Benadryl again today and got the Pfizer COVID-19 Vaccine shot yesterday, is the Benadryl counteracting the efficacy of the Pfizer COVID-19 Vaccine. He has had no other vaccines or immunizations other than the first dose of Pfizer COVID-19 Vaccine. He took Benadryl pill 2 hours before he went for the second dose of Pfizer COVID-19 Vaccine; had the second dose of Pfizer COVID-19 Vaccine shot, nothing happened until he would say maybe around 13:00; because he waited 30 minutes after the shot; got in the car and came home. Around 13:00 he started getting the itchiness but this time his skin felt like it was sunburned everywhere. He was not out in the sun, it is snowing there, there are clouds, no sun; skin all over felt like it was sunburned. On his stomach he had the little welts that started to itch; He took Benadryl. He did not want to use the Epi-Pen because the allergist said he had to call # if he used the Epi-Pen and he did not want to do that. Benadryl cleared it up; did not make it go away; about 4 hours later events started back; so he took Benadryl again; and about 4 hours later events came right back; it did that all night. Today, right now, he took a Benadryl let's say about 4-5 hours ago and events are not coming back like that. If events do not come back, he probably won't take another Benadryl. Events are a lot milder now, seems like they are going away. The Benadryl works. His concern is because he did hear on TV from one of those TV doctors on one of those daily regular daily talk shows that his idea was, and caller reported it is unknown how accurate the information is; but the doctor said avoid taking medications like Aspirin, Tylenol or antihistamines, all that stuff when you get your shot because it could affect the efficacy of the shot. Caller is not sure he is right; because his allergist just said take the Benadryl in case of anaphylactic shock which he did not have. Would like to know if this a waste of all this stuff he did because what they did now was he interfered with the action of the vaccine. No other vaccines were administered on same date with the Pfizer vaccine considered as suspect. The adverse events required visit to Physician office and not required to visit Emergency room and was not hospitalized. Therapeutic measures were taken as a result of the events. The outcome of the events was recovering. No follow up attempts are possible. No further information is expected.

A 78-years-old male patient received second dose of BNT162B2 (PFIZER-BIONTECH COVID-19 VACCINE, solution for injection; Batch/Lot Number: EL0261; NDC number, UPC number and expiry date: unknown) via an unspecified route of administration in left arm on 05Feb2021 (age at the time of vaccination was 78-year-old) as a single dose for COVID-19 immunization. The patient's medical history included high blood pressure and epilepsy both from an unknown date and unknown if ongoing. The patient had low level of sodium in his system because of phenobarbital. The patient's wife had metaplastic breast cancer and passed away 12 years ago. The patient's concomitant medications included phenobarbital; phenytoin (DILANTIN [PHENYTOIN]); riboflavin (VITAMIN B 2); cyanocobalamin (VITAMIN B 12 [CYANOCOBALAMIN]); vitamin D3; vitamin C [ascorbic acid]; tocopherol (VITAMIN E [TOCOPHEROL]); colecalciferol (VITAMIN D [COLECALCIFEROL]); calcium; ascorbic acid, ergocalciferol, folic acid, nicotinamide, panthenol, retinol, riboflavin, thiamine hydrochloride (MULTIVITAMINS [ASCORBIC ACID;ERGOCALCIFEROL;FOLIC ACID;NICOTINAMIDE;PANTHENOL;RETINOL;RIBOFLAVIN;THIAMINE HYDROCHLORIDE]) all taken for an unspecified indication, start and stop date were not reported. Previously, the patient received first dose of BNT162B2 (PFIZER-BIONTECH COVID-19 VACCINE; lot number: EK4176; NDC number and expiry date: not reported) on 15Jan2021 for COVID-19 immunization and experienced dizziness, headache and chest discomfort. The patient received second dose and reported that the injection was given at an angle and then there was bulb (bump) on his arm for 4 months. In Jul2021, the patient had feeling of sensation in his arm, feeling of the thing red, felt hot and had inter massive itchiness. The patient reported that the redness, heat and itching were in the location of the injection (area was in the upper portion of his left arm, almost by his shoulder). At first, the patient didn't really give it much attention because it was just sort of like rash and then it started becoming little bit attended and becoming little bit like heat there, the patient had no fever at all during the whole period. He had only minor discomfort and itching. The patient asked if anyone had experienced the sides effects which the patient felt at the injection site (feeling hot and intermittent itchiness). The events were reported as non-serious. The patient found an article on news entitled rare COVID arm phenomenon, a harmless immune response to vaccination, and the patient said that the article was talking about COVID arm, about where in 1st trial 344 people had the COVID arm but in the 2nd trial 64 people had COVID arm but this was the late body reaction that initially occur 10 to 14 days after the injection. The patient got 4 rounds of house treatment. The patient had been to safety and medical information. The patient had an article that he found online that covers all the symptoms that he had, that indicates that it was a delayed allergic reaction and that was the minor incidence and its extremely rare even on the global level. The patient reported that it occurred within the company Moderna, the other vaccine company like Pfizer that produced the 1st 2 vaccine. It was kind of same technology that they use, and the indication was that it will go away if an individual basically takes an aspirin or some anti-inflammatory for a few days. The patient was concerned about it because the way the owner of report said that the initial allergic reaction occurs with people within 10 to 14 days, the patient was 4 months after the effect and had symptoms. The patient explained the way he received injection. The patient reported that they may have given him the vaccine at an angle which created a small pocket through the medicine to stay into regional muscle and later it was released into his system and the patient experienced side effect, that was the minor side effect by description and he had an article that he can refer and even had a quotation medical journal of medicine, what they called a COVID arm phenomenon. The patient gave the reference of the website to other two ladies, where the rare phenomenon called the Covid arm was listed in detail. The patient further stated left upper right arm almost at the shoulder level. The patient did not receive any treatment medication. Investigations was not reported. The outcome of all the events was unknown.

rash worsened; compromised immune system with the Multiple Myeloma/ getting the COVID-19 Vaccine; compromised immune system with the Multiple Myeloma/ getting the COVID-19 Vaccine; This is a spontaneous report from a contactable nurse for her husband. A 79-year-old male patient received the 1st dose of BNT162B2 (PFIZER-BIONTECH COVID-19 VACCINE, lot number: EL9261), via an unspecified route of administration at left arm on 26Jan2021 06:00 at single dose for covid-19 immunisation. Medical history included plasma cell myeloma from Oct2018, a compromised immune system with the Multiple Myeloma, rash from Dec2020 and ongoing. The patient had a diagnosis of multiple myeloma and had developed a slight rash on his left arm to lenalidomide (REVLIMID) before receiving the COVID vaccine, Benadryl was taken and after 3 days, it was gone. It was only on his upper arms. She said a rash was a known side effect of the lenalidomide. The nurse giving his vaccine shot noticed his slight rash on his left arm. Concomitant medication included lenalidomide (REVLIMID) for 2.5 years for multiple myeloma in remission. The patient did not receive any other vaccines within 4 weeks prior to the COVID vaccine. The past drug included bortezomib (VELCADE), the patient was administered a chemo agent (bortezomib) at the oncology center every 2 weeks and the oncology center held off giving his chemo shot 2 weeks before he received his first COVID-19 Vaccine on 26Jan2021. The reporter said her husband would not restart the chemo shot until he sees his oncologist again. She clarified her husband has now been off the bortezomib for a month, as of 01Feb2021. The patient experienced rash worsened on 28Jan2021. By 28Jan2021 the rash had spread to his trunk and by 29Jan2021 to his back. She clarified his rash was a dry rash, with no blisters or oozing. Her first thought was to get an ointment or a spray. He has now been given prednisone instead of a dose pack and the rash was gone/ the rash cleared up almost immediately and will stop lenalidomide for a couple weeks and continue the round of prednisone. The doctor could alter his therapy as needed. On 04Feb2021, the rash was gone but her husband's doctor wants him to finish his prescribed course of Prednisone. She clarified the Prednisone (manufacturer: Actavis) 40 mg was started on 01Feb2021, the rash started fading fast. By the next day (Tuesday, 02Feb2021) the rash was really fading, and now (04Feb2021) the rash was totally not there. The doctor told her husband to take one Benadryl, and to continue taking the Benadryl if his rash itches. She said her husband's latest blood work didn't indicate anything. She said her husband's labs were always off, but were normal for having Multiple Myeloma. Both doctors want to keep her husband off of the lenalidomide. Reporter seriousness was reported as medically significant . The patient was treated for Multiple Myeloma for the past 2-1/2 years. He had been doing well, and his cancer doctors approved of him getting the COVID-19 Vaccine. The oncologist wanted her to call Pfizer to see if she can find anything about the COVID-19 Vaccine and how it pertains to the lenalidomide and her husband's Multiple Myeloma. She said her husband was almost 80 years old and very active. She said her husband had been in remission Multiple Myeloma for a year and his blood work was fine. By the time her husband starts taking lenalidomide again, he would be off of lenalidomide for almost 4 weeks. She said her husband's oncologist said he was going to cut back her husband's lenalidomide milligram dose and change his lenalidomide frequency to every other day when he resumes the lenalidomide. The reporter checked her husband's blood pressure (130/76) on 29Jan2021, after his rash worsened. She saidnot require a visit to emergency room or physician office. The rash event outcome his pulse was fine, and she tested his blood sugar and it was fine. She said he had no temperature, clarifying his temperature was 97.6. The event did was recovering. The drug result was reported as unrelated. The reporter and her husband's doctors don't think his rash has anything to do with the COVID-19 Vaccine. The patient asked if Pfizer can point her in any direction with regard to her husband's situation. She said she read the COVID-19 Vaccine is a dead virus, but wants to know if her husband should be cautious in getting the second COVID-19 Vaccine dose. She said her husband's doctors know that the rash was not precipitated by the COVID-19 Vaccine, but his rash did get worse after he got the first COVID-19 Vaccine dose. His second dose was due 16Feb2021. The reporter was wondering if she should delay the second dose of the vaccine, the vaccine would make the rash worse.; Sender's Comments: Based on the information currently provided, the rash worsened after 2 days following the vaccine use thus a contributory role of BNT162B2 might not be fully excluded towards the event onset. Severe allergic reaction is the known risk for the product and Rash faded soon under Prednisone. The underlying predisposing condition of allergies to multiple materials may put the patient at high risk of anaphylactic reactions. The impact of this report on the benefit/risk profile of the Pfizer product is evaluated as part of Pfizer procedures for safety evaluation, including the review and analysis of aggregate data for adverse events. Any safety concern identified as part of this review, as well as any appropriate action in response, will be promptly notified to Regulatory Authorities, Ethics Committees and Investigators, as appropriate

This nurse reported similar events for two patients. This report refers to the husband. An 80-year-old male patient received first dose of BNT162B2 (PFIZER-BIONTECH COVID-19 VACCINE) (lot number: EL3246, expiry date: 30Apr2021, NDC number of Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine: 59267- 1000-2), via an unspecified route of administration on 06Jan2021 18:00 at single dose in the left arm for COVID-19 vaccination. Medical history included joint surgery which he just had one at the end of December of last year (2020) and had a procedure in Sep (unknown year); and prostate cancer which he had surgery February last year for this. The patient's concomitant medications were not reported. The nurse (patient's wife) reported that the patient received the Covid -19 Vaccine around 6 o'clock on Wednesday evening. So basically 2 days ago and neither one of them seem to show any major reaction but yesterday sometime during the day, he started noticing a little bit of itching in his abdominal area and his back, no sign of whatsoever of a rash, there is no evidence of a rash at all but it is bothering him off and on today and she just didn't notice that was related in anyway. It's not in any of the paperwork we received and it's no rash and he is not having trouble breathing anything like that but he is having these periodic episodes of feeling itchy. When paraphrased the above concern, nurse stated, "That's right, the back, basically yes and no other area right across the abdominal area and some occasionally little bit on his leg but more often on his back and it is not constant and there is no visible rash and he doesn't have a history of drug allergies. He is not one who generally reacts and he has no temperature, his vital signs are good. They just wanted to know if something we should be concerned about or whether there is been any report of this, she asked if they should call the doctor or what should they do. On 12Jan2021, the nurse called again and she stated that on 07Jan2021 (Thursday), the patient experienced random itching and continued in to Friday. Furthermore, she stated that the day after he got the shot, and he is 80 with no history of drug reactions he had itching to his back, abdomen, some to the upper parts of his legs/thigh area and had a little bit to his head clarified to being his scalp. She says that she went to the drug store and got him some Benadryl. She says her the itching went away then on Thursday, and the next day he works part time, so he went to work on Friday and it started again. He was better on Saturday. She would like to know if this is a possible side effect, or if there might be a problem with him getting second dose. She said that the itching was in random places, it was the second night that she gave him the Benadryl that knocked him out, clarified he was sleepy after taking the Benadryl. She says she never saw a rash on his skin, and Saturday the itching was mitigated considerably. She said on Friday night she had got a little nervous, since the patient is 80 and has some health issues but no issues with medications in the past to their knowledge. He was better the next day. She says she doesn't know if his itching was associated with the vaccine. Also reported that the patient received one injection to his left arm and his arm was black and blue afterwards. The outcome of the event "Periodic episodes of feeling itchy/itching to his back, abdomen, some to the upper parts of his legs/thigh area and had a little bit to his head clarified to being his scalp" was recovered on 09Jan2021; for event "her husband received one injection to his left arm and his arm was black and blue" was unknown.; Sender's Comments: Linked Report(s) : US-PFIZER INC-2021028800 same reporter/drug, different event

shortness of breath; The shortness of breath has continued and has gotten a little worse; Nasal congestion; Coughing; heaviness in chest; It was like lumps; This is a spontaneous report from a contactable consumer or other non hcp (patient himself). A 80-years-old male patient received bnt162b2 (PFIZER-BIONTECH COVID-19 mRNA VACCINE, Formulation: Solution for injection), dose 2 via an unspecified route of administration, administered in Arm Left on 13Feb2021 12:10 (at the age of 80 years old) (Batch/Lot Number: EL9269; Expiration Date: 31May2021) as single dose for COVID-19 immunisation. Previously the patient received bnt162b2 (PFIZER-BIONTECH COVID-19 mRNA VACCINE, Formulation: Solution for injection), dose 1 via an unspecified route of administration, administered in Arm Left on 23Jan2021 (at the age of 80 years old) (Batch/Lot Number: EL3248; Expiration Date: 30Apr2021) as single dose for COVID-19 immunisation. Medical history included Heart bypass, it was 18 years ago. It was a aortic valve replacement, ongoing lymphoma cancer, and it is gone at this point, had shingles on the right side in 2015, skin cancer in both ears in 2016. Concomitant medications included ongoing warfarin sodium (COUMADIN), ongoing warfarin deanol, ongoing carvedilol, ongoing atorvastatin calcium (LIPITOR ORIFARM), ongoing atorvastatin, ongoing hydrochlorothiazide, triamterene (TRIAMTERENE & HCTZ), ongoing gabapentin (GABAPENTIN) taken for restless legs syndrome, ongoing acetylsalicylic acid (BABY ASPIRIN), ongoing turmeric and bromelain, ongoing ascorbic acid, betacarotene, cupric oxide, tocopheryl acetate, zinc oxide (PRESERVISION) taken for macular hole, ongoing loperamide hydrochloride (IMODIUM) taken for diarrhoea, ongoing bifidobacterium bifidum, bifidobacterium lactis, lactobacillus acidophilus, lactobacillus brevis, lactobacillus bulgaricus, lactobacillus casei, lactobacillus paracasei, lactobacillus plantarum, lactobacillus rhamnosus, lactobacillus salivarius (PROBIOTIC 10), ongoing potassium, ongoing Calcium citrate magnesium zinc all in one pill 80mg Magnesium, 500mg Calcium, 10mg Zinc, 20mg B6 taken for restless legs syndrome. Has been on his normal medications for years and nothing has changed. Has been on all of these medications at least 15 years, or more than that, maybe 18 years. The patient experienced shortness of breath since Feb2021 (at the age of 80 years and 6 monthes). He received both doses of the Pfizer Covid-19 Vaccine and received his second dose 13Feb2021. He has been to his doctor and has been treated with antibiotics and Prednisone. He wanted to know what he should do about it. Caller's shortness of breath began a couple of weeks after his second dose in Mar2021, where it became noticeable, and it continues. The patient would like to know if others have reported shortness of breath after receiving the Pfizer Covid-19 Vaccine. He has been experiencing shortness of breath since Feb2021. Maybe it is a side effect of the Covid vaccine, he does not know. First stated that it was around 15Feb2021 or earlier, when he first went to the doctor. He stated that he did start experiencing it before then. He wouldn't of went to the doctor if he didn't have that. Wife was brought on the phone to describe the event further. Stated that 01Mar2021 is when he first went to the doctor. They went on vacation on an unspecified date in Mar2021 and his wife had to take him to a clinic there that it was around 09Mar2021. He has had 4 series of antibiotics and prednisone since that first visit in Mar2021. When he got home, he went to the doctor again and they gave him more antibiotics and Prednisone. Then again in May, he had another round of it, and is still experiencing shortness of breath. He had also had other symptoms at that time. He had a lot of congestion. It did not stop but that has kind of subsided. The shortness of breath has remained. He had heard a news report stating shortness of breath symptoms have been reported regarding the COVID vaccine. He had his last shot 13Feb2021, he thinks it was. Soon after, he started having the shortness of breath. At first, he didn't relate it to the Covid shot. He does have heart problems. The first antibiotic was Azithromycin, it was with the Prednisone, It was the ZPack. He took it for 6 days and then tapered one every day. In Mar 2021 he took Medrol pack, which was 4mg tablets. They were different Prednisones and different antibiotics each time. The last one he took was Doxycycline, which was 40mg and he took it for 4 days. Can't remember what the other one was. Caller states that he had the Zpack from the clinic and his doctor gave him Doxycycline after he came home. It was a different amount of Prednisone each time. He had a lot of allergy like symptoms with nasal congestion and coughing. States that it was clear congestion and was probably 3 times as thick as with normal nasal problems. It was like lumps, was clear and was coughing it up. The congestion started when he was coughing up stuff. The last time his doctor gave him nasal spray, Azelastine HCI, which was in a spray bottle with 30ml. He stopped it after a period of time. He still has some congestion every day, but it is not near what it was before. The Prednisone and antibiotic lessened the problem along with the nasal spray and really helped. The shortness of breath has continued and has gotten a little worse. He used to be able to walk 3 quarters of a mile every day but now he probably can't walk 4 blocks. Sometimes, just sitting on the couch, watching TV, he gets heaviness in his chest. He has to breathe really deep to get it fixed. When he had his oxygen level tested, at the doctor's office, it is always 98, 99 or 100 percent. The doctor listens to his lungs and he doesn't see or hear anything that is going on. He had an X-ray for his lungs they didn't see anything there either. Had a chest X-ray, blood tests by his primary care physician and heart doctor. Had blood tests by his oncology doctor. All of those came out normal, with no problems. Feel free to ask for those results. No other additional vaccines were administered on Same Date of the Pfizer Suspect. The patient has not received any other vaccines within 4 weeks prior vaccinations. The adverse event shortness of breath resulted in visit to urgent care and physician office. The patient underwent lab tests and procedures which included chest x-ray: normal on an unspecified date. Therapeutic measures were taken as a result of the adverse events. The outcome of the events was unknown.; Sender's Comments: Based on plausible temporal relationship, a possible causal association between the events "Dyspnoea, Nasal congestion ,Cough, Chest discomfort " and the suspect drug BNT162B2 cannot be excluded. The impact of this report on the benefit/risk profile of the Pfizer product is evaluated as part of Pfizer procedures for safety evaluation, including the review and analysis of aggregate data for adverse events. Any safety concern identified as part of this review, as well as any appropriate action in re-sponse, will be promptly notified to regulatory authorities, Ethics Committees, and Investigators, as appropriate.

He had chills all night and could not get warm. The reporter had not taken the patient's temperature yet. The patient takes regular medications. The patient was on warfarin and standard medications. The reporter stated the vaccine cards were mixed up because they did not write their names on them and the vaccine lot numbers looks like they were mixed up.

There was no Additional Vaccines Administered on Same Date of the Pfizer Suspect. There was not Emergency Room Visit or physician's office required Prior Vaccinations (within 4 weeks). The outcome of the event was not recovered.

An 81-year-old male patient received bnt162b2 (PFIZER-BIONTECH COVID-19 VACCINE, Solution for injection), dose 1 via an unspecified route of administration, administered in left arm at the age of 81-year-old on 27Mar2021 (Lot Number: EP6955) as single dose for COVID-19 immunisation. Medical history included cancer from 2018 (started out with BCG treatments, where they insert bacteria into the bladder); Had another form of immunotherapy that didn't work too well for him and the cancer kept growing chemotherapy; Had a couple of operations and surgeries where the doctor removed it all but it came back. Best reaction was chemotherapy (It stopped the bleeding and was working on the cancer). Last one was 15Feb2021. Was getting blood work for every treatment. Had to miss one of the treatments due to low platelets. Has a chest port for treatments and blood work. Was very conscious before having chemo. It is kind of a rough thing to kill cancer but also kills good cells too. Definitely worked on killing the cancer for a while; the last treatment was 15Feb2021. Stage 4 was taking chemo. Had bladder cancer (which got out of the bladder and started spreading in to the lymph system), Height: used to be 5'7", is now maybe 5"4". The caller remarks that when he started with chemotherapy. he also lost a lot of weight. Weight: When he went in for last appointment it was 129 or 130 pounds. The patient's concomitant medications were not reported. The patient previously took chemotherapy nos from unknown date to 15Feb2021 for cancer. The patient experienced pain in neck and back on 28Mar2021, pain in chest on 29Mar2021. Caller stating that he and his wife had shot number one 27Mar2021 and are scheduled for second shot 20Apr2021. Wife had no symptoms, maybe a bit of a sore arm and he had the same reaction. Was a very mild sore arm in 2021. On day 2 or 3 on the right side of the neck, had felt a little nagging in Mar2021 and slight pain, especially when he moved and felt it around his back. It is just starting to go away now at 3 weeks. Around the back, around the perimeter and when he coughs in Mar2021, he can feel it in his chest. He is scheduled for the second shot. Is wondering if the second shot will have those symptoms. It's not like it is anything severe, it is just nagging. What worries is him, is that it lasted this long. Is a cancer patient and had last chemotherapy 15Feb2021. His oncologist said to go ahead and take the shot because he really needs the protection. It was asked what if he has the same reaction again. Will go on website but wanted to find out what other people are experiencing and whether or not to take the second shot. Wants to take it for protection. Really wants to take the shot on Tuesday. Pain in neck and back: Only when he coughs, is more of an ache. Started day 2 after vaccine on 28Mar2021. Was like a very dull irritation in the right side of the neck in Mar2021. Was probably the lymph node in Mar2021. Pain in chest: When he sneezes in Mar2021, there is a sharp pain, all around the perimeter of his chest. Is gone as soon as he stops coughing. Feels when muscles are contracting in Mar2021. Started day 3 after getting the vaccine on 29Mar2021. Stage 4 was taking chemo. Had bladder cancer, which got out of the bladder and started spreading in to the lymph system. Wants to be put on immunotherapy but can't until he is finished with his shots. If he gets the immunotherapy and if he has a reaction, would have to use steroids and they do not want to do that with the vaccine. The doctor wanted to start him earlier on the immunotherapy but thought it was important to get the vaccine first, that taken care of. The pain is only sharp if he lifts something. Otherwise, it is just dull. He knows it is there. It is not completely gone. This morning was the best that he had. Really got good sleep last night. The best since it has happened. When he sneezes, he can kind of feel it around his chest, just around the perimeter of the muscles. Treatment: The first couple of days, just put up with it. Took Tylenol one day and then on another day. Takes at bedtime. Does not like taking Tylenol because it effects his liver. If he doesn't need it, he doesn't take it. In the last week, every night he has been less and less bothered by how he slept. Last night he didn't even know he had it, the pain, and slept really well. Have not taken any meds, just Tylenol on day 4 and 5 to help sleep. Therapeutic measures were taken as a result of events. The outcome of events very mild sore arm, sneezes and feels when muscles are contracting was unknown. The outcome of other events was recovering. No follow-up attempts are needed. No further information is expected.

"very dark red, big, angry rash" on the back of both of his hands that is moving up his arms, which the caller describes as "erythema multiform"; This is a spontaneous report from contactable consumers (one is the caregiver). An 82-year-old male patient received the first dose of BNT162B2 (PFIZER-BIONTECH COVID-19 VACCINE, lot no. and expiry date were not reported), via an unspecified route of administration on 23Feb2021 (at the age of 82-year-old) at single dose for COVID-19 immunization. Medical history included cancer, stage 4 renal cancer with metastasis to the lung, kidney failure and being dialyzed, electrolyte imbalance, prostate infection, blood pressure abnormal. Concomitant medications included prednisone for kidney failure; sevelamer carbonate (RENVELA) to regulates his electrolytes; hydralazine (HYDRALAZINE) for blood pressure; candesartan for blood pressure; metoprolol succinate (TOPROL) for blood pressure; finasteride for prostate; and amlodipine. The patient developed a very dark red, big, angry rash on the back of both of his hands that is moving up his arms (reported as worsened), which the consumer describes as "erythema multiforme". Looks like erythema multiform is this rash associated with the product very dark red, big angry splotches very large. He was told he should get the vaccination, his oncologist and his nephrologist said he should get it so he got the vaccination last Tuesday and then he woke up either the next day or the day after that and her mother said he had a very severe rash on his hands and now it is climbing up his arms. It almost looks like erythema multiforme but it has no bulls eye, It is dark red and ugly looking it is rough, it is not really raised. They went to the oncologist and they took blood work to make sure his platelets were okay and they were normal so his doctors are baffled with this. She is calling from her husband's surgery office and they are disgusted with the healthcare he is receiving there but she wants to know if there is any data with cancer patients taking the vaccine or with people that have developed a rash like she is describing. His weight has dropped a lot since she last saw him he is 5'10", now he is probably about 150 or 160 lbs. That is an estimate. He developed the rash either 24Feb2021 or 25Feb2021, she is not sure which. It was ongoing and it is actually spreading up his arms so she would say it is worsened. He is on a slew of medications, but she doesn't know if they want all of them. It could be an interaction with medication, he is a really sick person. The outcome of the event was not recovered. Information on lot number/batch number has been requested.

He asks what he should do. He had seen a cardiologist, urologist, and his regular doctor. In the beginning he had itchiness and pins and needles all the time, but now it was on and off. For example right now he did not have it but when he woke up this morning it was there. He tried different soaps and different shampoos, just in case that was it. He even took off some of the medications for a couple days to be sure it was one of them but no. He was almost 100% sure it was it, he never had this before. Started the night of the shot. It got a little better in the night. The next morning he took Tylenol and felt better and thought it was all over. It was then explained that it started again about a week or so later and now he has it all the time. Itchiness began a week or a week or a half. Then says it could have been 2 weeks later. The symptoms are on and off. For the aches and pains he took Tylenol and it went away.

covid shot estimated at Feb 1st between 1-2 PM, first shot, and then had a trip and fall that day. 3-5 days later noted cellulitis on his leg with redness, swelling, pain, edema and went to urgent care on the 10th, given some antibiotics which he is currently taking and the site is looking much better. Patient notes also painless nodules going down his bicep, but not where lymph nodes are (more in the middle of the arm from the site, not near elbow or armpit). Pt also noted some bruising initially at the injection site which is better. Should he still get his second shot even with the abx and cellulitis? Adv cellulitis on the leg more related to the fall than the shot. The nodules could be from the shot but as they aren't where I would typically expect to see lymphadenopathy would rec FU with PCP if the nodules persist or worsen. None of this is a contraindication to getting the second dose of the vaccine, but inform the vaccine providers that you are on elliquis so they can be aware to watch for additional bruising/bleeding, which is common after the shot. Discussed also Q518.

First of all, the second dose may be FM - it was cut too close for me to tell. His problem was severe itching across the back and down the back to below his waist. Itching on shoulders and down below the underarm, some on legs/arms. It started around the time of the vaccine and was starting to get better, then he got the second shot on Feb 10 and he's still itching today but not as bad. He did see his heart doctor after the first shot and the nurse also had some itching. We also went to see a dermatologist and he couldn't figure out what the cause was. His back/shoulders/arms/legs had red splotches all over where the itching was. Not exactly a rash but small up to medium sized - about the size of one's fingernail, and raised a little bit. All this was why he went at least a month only taking his necessary heart medications and then he went back on the regular stuff but the itching is still there, although not as irritating now as before.
