While serious reactions to BCG are rare, unfortunately they do happen. Most of the reactions are mild compared to what you have experienced. So sorry this happened to you,

Has anyone experienced bad side effects after BCG. I ended up in the hospital with Pneumonia, high fevers, large red welts on my skin and difficulty breathing. All tests have come back negative, still waiting on BCG in blood culture. Now sitting home sucking on an OXygen tank. Please let me know if anyone else has experienced this.
