In the meantime, for the pain, try some ibuprofen, 600mg. ...Read more

Is it normal for arms to swell and harden at the injection site after allergy shots?

It's pretty common: it's an immune reaction. Personally, I kind of believe in the 19th century idea that a vaccine that makes more of a 'take' (the signs you mention) produces a better immune reaction. Vaccines vary between the type (live is stronger) and between people on how much inflammation they produce. ...Read more

But tell your doctor, who probably will inform the blood draw personnel; they'll want to know. ...Read more
