I'm experiencing SEVERE skin rash and hives forming in areas where I was swapped with Chloraprep - something used before surgery to clean the surrounding areas. It's been day 9 post-op and this stubborn red rash is not going away. I've tried hydrocortisone 1% cream but it's not helping much. Others on http://patientsville.com/medication/chloraprep3_side_effects.htm have tried benadryl and Prednisone but there seems to be quite a number of side effects. Has anyone else experienced this? What are the regimen to treat this and how long does it take for the rash to go away? Ug, I'm feeling horrible right now and can't sleep because my entire chest is itchy because of the rash. Although the surgery went well, it's unfortunate that I have to experience this nasty rash as a side effect. Please write your recommendations!
