There was no concomitant medication. On 21-MAY-2007 the patient developed a rash that started on the belly and spread to the back and both legs. The physician noted that it was unknown whether the rash was already there before the patient received the vaccination, however the patient noticed the rash and mild itching the day that the vaccination was given. The patient was given cetirizine hydrochloride (ZYRTEC). At the time of this report, the patient''s rash and itching persisted. The reporting physician felt that the events were serious for another other medical event due to treatment with cetirizine hydrochloride (ZYRTEC). Additional information has been requested.
