A patient suffering from several ailments claims she might have experienced an extreme reaction.

The Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine has been related to blood clots, but would it make you look like an extraterrestrial?

Susie Forbes, a resident of Lichfield, Staffordshire, England, says she felt like something from another planet after breaking out in a rash and experiencing bubbling skin following her vaccination, according to Triangle News.

Forbes, 49, reported that the skin problems began hours after she received her shot on March 18.

“It felt like I was in 'Alien,' because bubbles were flowing out of my arm. It was heinous. My grin was enormous. Forbes told Triangle News, "I was a beast." My daughter was calling me, pleading for me to go to the hospital.

“It has killed me and my daughter. I'll have to deal with it because I have marks on my body.”

The woman, who has Guillain-Barre syndrome and has had anaphylactic reactions to penicillin and Stemetil, claims she may have had an extreme reaction to the vaccine

According to the UK's Medicines and Healthcare Regulatory Agency, one in every ten people will experience side effects from the COVID-19 vaccine, with the most common being nausea, headache, or flu-like symptoms.

According to health authorities, someone with allergies who has had an anaphylactic reaction will still receive the vaccine, but anyone allergic to its ingredients should avoid it.

Forbes is not believed to be allergic to the AstraZeneca vaccine's ingredients. The woman is also taking several drugs and was taking liquid morphine and codeine at the time of her injection.

Forbes chastised her physicians for failing to understand her medical history before the vaccine. She said they simply told her, "You'll be fine."

She stated that she became panicked after the allergic reaction and was given allergy medication as well as steroids to fight it.

The Midlands and Lancashire Commissioning Support Unit, which delivered the vaccine to Forbes, did not respond to Triangle News' request for comment.
