I had a weird reaction (most likely serum sickness) to a prescription I started taking almost three weeks for adult acne, and the end result was me in the ER getting Benedryl and steroids through an IV. It started as a super itchy rash that only hung out on my joints and culminated in a ridiculous amount of swelling in my fingers, hands, knees, eyelids, feet, and ankles. Like, so bad that I have bruises from being so swollen. I’m getting better, although I’m currently on the Prednisone train and my body can’t decide if I should be laughing or crying at the moment. My life is weird.
On the bright side, my hair has faded to the magical shade where everyone I meet compliments me and asks if I’m a natural redhead, so that’s a plus.
