What was your life like before you received the COVID-19 vaccine?
Describe the symptoms and the timeline of the reaction.
Urticaria (hives), dermatographia, sharp and severe stomach pains. These all started 8 days after the booster and progressively worsened over the ensuing weeks. Initially type 1 and type 2 antihistamines worked to control symptoms. But, needed to be increased over time to address breakthrough eruptions. After 11 weeks was put on cyclosporine which helped for 6 weeks, but then more breakthrough eruptions happened and antihistamines were added. After 6 months I was started on Ivermectin by a private doctor. This has helped, but must also take Quercetin and Zinc. Breakthrough eruptions still happen if I miss a dose or experience significant stress.
Still seeking answers as urticaria appears to be a fairly common side effect to the mRNA vaccines.
