Carmen (4 years ago):

I had an iodine CT scan on Saturday night and Sunday I started itching and broke out in a hives type rash by monday...I had alot of tight coughing too, but not trouble breathing or anything else. Is this a reaction to the iodine? It is now Tuesday and the rash is still there although not anywhere near as itchy. Any info would be appreciated...thanks!
