Rash.... From stress possibly during IVF?

Hi ladies, Obviously I've become a hot mess between coming down with a head cold and now developing a hand rash during my first week of injections!

I wanted to ask if anyone else developed a rash or any other odd side effects during IVF?

Two weeks ago I woke up with my hand itching. After looking at it I noticed two tiny bute looking marks, I figured it might be a small spider bite? I began my injections last Friday and since those two "bites" have turned into about 15-20 on both hands. Almost blisters, a burning rash that itches like crazy.

My general physician thinks its a "stress rash." Have been trying to take it extra easy, get lots of rest, etc.

Am I the only crazy one here?

Oh wow, that sucks. I'm sorry to hear that! Although I do think that stress can cause all sorts of manifestations, I would ask your RE if rashes are a possible side effect of the meds you're on. It's very likely that could be the case or - worse, maybe you're allergic to them??

I hope you find out what it is!

After visiting my dermatologist I found out it was not related to anything I'm undergoing with fertility . Phewwwww!
