Had shingle jab a week ago have a very painful and swollen arm headache and sweating been putting savlon on arm to try and ease it for the rash ?
First time or recur: The wording of your question suggests that you are familiar with shingles, having a "jab"? The treatment of the initial episode is quite different than treating recurring post-herpetic neuralgia/pain. I don't think Savlon, an antibiotic cream, should help. Initial rash & blisters best treated at home with moist compresses, calamine lotion, & topical cream for inflammation. Next, Rx. meds from MD. ...Read more
Does swelling usually accompany hives? I've been having an allergic food reaction. I get hives on my hands & feet. My foot started to swell slightly.
Yes: Hives is a "swelling" type of reaction. With the release of histamine, fluids go out into the tissues and cause swelling. This is often present in the hands, feet and face, especially the lips. Sounds as though you have a rather marked problem and should see someone who deals with allergy and its reactions. Testing may be available and treatment once the allergen is identified. Good luck! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

After getting a flu shot, the injection site swelled & was hot. It itched mildly. Now, 2 days after shot, I have a rash under my arms. Is this related?
May be: The interval between your flu vaccine and the rash may suggest that the rash is due to the vaccine. However, it may be a coincidence. If it does not bother you, i would wait. If it itches, would take an antihistamine such as cetirizine, Loratadine or fexofenadine (all available otc). If no better if a few days, see your physician. ...Read more

Ice, elevate: If you are having severe pain, numbness, weakness, or tingling, you should have it looked at in urgent care. Sometimes swelling can track between the tissues causing swelling in an area further down the body. Too much can cause other symptoms and should be looked at sooner rather than later. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
