Allergic Reaction?

So i'm 18 years old and I had to go get my tetanus shot about a week ago for college. Well I started out having a warm lump where they injected me and it was sore, but the swelling has gone down with time. I developed an itchy rash in the crease of my arm that was injected. I've been putting lotion on it but it doesnt seem to be helping. Is this a serious side effect?

Re: Allergic Reaction?

I doubt it has anything to do with the shot since it's so localized. Try some cortizone cream on it.

Re: Allergic Reaction?

Hope your rash has gone away by now. The soreness and warm lump was a reaction to your Td/Tdap shot (and a quite common one) but not the itchy rash in the crease of your arm. Not sure what caused that but it wasn't the vaccination.
