⭐️FIVE Little Allergy/Immunology Lessons from 5 Big Days on Consults ⭐️ @mghaifellows @MGHAllergy. #Urticaria #Angioedema #vaccine reactions eosinophilia and #drugallergy /1
ONE-To treat acute urticaria (hives), antihistamines should be nonsedating and scheduled (not diphenhydramine PRN). Allegra/fexofenadine and Zyrtec/cetirizine have large therapeutic windows and are used safely at 4+ times the daily allergic rhinitis dose/2
TWO-Angioedema in an adult without skin itching/hives/rash—check if they on an ACE inhibitor! Although ~10% get it w/in 30d, many happen after years of uneventfully being on it /3…

1/ @MGHAllergy @BWHAllergy @vumc_cdsi_rsch #vaccine and #drugallergy experts provide a clear and concise approach to safely evaluate those with a history of #anaphylaxis and anyone with an #allergicreaction reaction to the first dose of @Pfizer or @Moderna #CovidVaccine.
2/ See our updated manuscript @JACIInPractice that includes information on #skintesting using non-irritating skin test concentrations to #PEG and #polysorbate and when to consider #skintesting…
3/ The potential life-saving benefit of vaccination makes it essential that we carefully evaluate every possible #allergicreaction to prevent denying access to the vaccine unnecessarily. Our knowledge is rapidly evolving and future recommendations may change with more data.

1/ OK so 1 week after UK #COVID19Vaccine allergy was described, I need to reorient you to my world, the world where #drugallergy is the best field of #MedTwitter #AIMedEd #allergyimmunologyrocks. Let's get down to this confusion about the #covid19vaccine and #allergy
2/ There is no reason to think that anyone -- other than patients with a known allergy to an ingredient in this vaccine or an ingredient cross-reactive to an ingredient in this vaccine -- might have an #allergy the @pfizer #CovidVaccine.
3/ There is even very little that we think could cause an #allergy in this @pfizer vaccine. But 2 patients had #anaphylaxis after vaccination and we need to think about why. Something epidemiologically different in the UK population compared to clinical trial populations?
