    I underwent a robotic laproscopic hesterectomy and was told duraprep was used prior to surgery even though I notified the surgeon and the hospital that I had an allergy to topical iodine, bracelet was worn and yet this duraprep was used. I have been dealing with a rash from my breast to mid thigh for two weeks and the pain, itching and blistering are unbearable. Very aggravated!

  • My son had meniscus surgery. Two days post-op, his surgical site was red. After 3 days, blisters developed. The blisters got worse over the following week and my son experienced severe pain. He is now 6 weeks post-op and his skin is scarred.
