Virginia man has peeled skin after being vaccinated against COVID-19
According to doctors, the Virginia man suffered a rare reaction to the COVID-19 vaccine, which resulted in a painful rash spreading throughout his body and peeling off his skin. Writes about it New York Post.
Richard Terrell, 74, of Goochland, began suffering from strange symptoms four days after he was given a single dose of Johnson & Johnson's vaccine, according to the WRIC news channel.
“I started to feel a little discomfort in my armpit, and after a few days I started to develop an itchy rash. Then I started to swell and my skin turned red, ”Terrell said.
Soon, a rash covered his entire body.
“Everything happened so quickly. My skin is peeling, ”Terrell told the publication.
“There was a burning sensation and itching. Every time I bent my arms or legs, for example, the inside of my knee hurt a lot, the skin swelled and rubbed against itself, ”he continued.
He went to the hospital emergency department, where doctors determined he had an adverse reaction to the vaccine, WRIC reported.
“We ruled out all viral infections, we ruled out COVID-19 itself, we made sure that his kidneys and liver were in order, and finally we came to the conclusion that the vaccine he received was the cause,” said Dr. Fnu Nutan.
She said the medical episode could have been life-threatening if not treated.
“The skin is the largest organ in the body, and when it gets inflamed, like it does, you can lose a lot of fluids and electrolytes,” Nutan told the publication.

“If you look at the risk of an adverse reaction to the vaccine, it is really very low,” she said. “We're not too worried. I'm a big supporter of the vaccine. "
