what are the side effects of iron infusions?

Have had 5 iron infusions due to very low iron, have had gastric bypass surgery ( 2003).  Have red, itchy areas on inside thighs, top of right thigh, some on inside upper arms.   Separated some flowers for Mother's Day last Saturday, both hands itched by Wednesday am, had a few smallish blisters on some fingers, blamed on flowers.  My urgent care is very conservative, and of course, doctors are out until Tuesday.  Showers irritated, lotion doesn't help nor did benedryl.
