jen schlitz (3 years ago):

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.

    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!
