Judging by what your are describing this seems to be normal side effects following a treatment. Typically, the Vitamin B in the medication solution might have dropped onto  your skin while the treatment was being done; it tends to cause itching, swelling, hive-like bumps. This should subside within a day or two. Make sure to follow up with your Physician. Good Luck!
