Post Covid Vaccination Skin Reactions

Post-Covid Vaccination Skin Reactions: Some, mostly nonserious, skin reactions, such as hives are being seen post the mRNA COVID-19 Vaccines typically between a few hours and a few days to one week after being injected. Large local injection site reactions, erythema, edema, diffuse rashes, redness, and swelling in the hands and feet are the most common. For most patients, topical steroids and antihistamines help resolve these reactions. There have been some reports of herpes and shingles outbreaks. Of note, there have been some reports of rashes in infants of vaccinated breastfeeding mothers.
