    I got an infection from a splinter resulting in blood infection and 2 surgerys on my hand and 7 additional days IV Therapy with Vanco. Along with being tired all the time, I also have hearing, and severe joint pain in all my joints. Worst of all, I'm not for sure if the infection is completly gone.

    I just spent 10 days in the hospital with some kind of infection. Vancomycin was the treatment through picc line. While in the hospital I had 100mg benedryl 3 times daily. After coming home with infusions 2 times a day developed a severe itchy red rash all over my body. ER gave me steriods and benedryl still waiting for rash to go away. I will never use this drug again.
