Chloraprep Blister Causes and Reviews
What are Blisters?
Blisters are fluid-filled sacs on the outer layer of your skin. They form because of rubbing, heat, or diseases of the skin. They are most common on your hands and feet.
Other names for Blisters are vesicles (usually for smaller Blisters) and bulla (for larger Blisters).What causes Blisters?
Blisters often happen when there is friction - rubbing or pressure - on one spot. For example, if your shoes don't fit quite right and they keep rubbing part of your foot. Or if you don't wear gloves when you rake leaves and the handle keeps rubbing against your hand. Other causes of Blisters include
- Allergic reactions
- Poison ivy, oak, and sumac
- Autoimmune diseases such as pemphigus
- Epidermolysis bullosa, an illness that causes the skin to be fragile
- Viral infections such as varicella zoster (which causes chickenpox and shingles) and herpes simplex (which causes cold sores)
- Skin infections including impetigo
Blisters will usually heal on their own. The skin over the Blister helps keep out infections. You can put a bandage on the Blister to keep it clean. Make sure that there is no more rubbing or friction on the Blister.
You should contact your health care provider if
- The Blister looks infected - if it is draining pus, or the area around the Blister is red, swollen, warm, or very painful
- You have a fever
- You have several Blisters, especially if you cannot figure out what is causing them
- You have health problems such as circulation problems or diabetes
Normally you don't want to drain a Blister, because of the risk of infection. But if a Blister is large, painful, or looks like it will pop on its own, you can drain the fluid.Can Blisters be prevented?
There are some things you can do to prevent friction Blisters:
- Make sure that your shoes fit properly
- Always wear socks with your shoes, and make sure that the socks fit well. You may want to wear socks that are acrylic or nylon, so they keep moisture away from your feet.
- Wear gloves or protective gear on your hands when you use any tools or sports equipment that cause friction.
Chloraprep Blister Reviews

|Shortly after my lumpectomy I discovered a rash that covered from my waist up and parts of my left arm plus a Blister. The Blister is located next to the incision where one lymphatic node was removed. Found out from my doctor that the rash is quite common. Chloraprep was used on me in the operating room. Hibicleus cleanser wasn't the culprit as I has used it twice:the night before and the day opf my surgery. I'm wondering how long will I have this rash. I'm using cetaphil cleanser and lotion only.|

|I had surgery to repair a collapsed Radius bone after a fracture and had Chloraprep used on me from my left hand to above my elbow. The second day after surgery, you could see a whelt under the top part of the dressing the docotr had applied. By the third day, I had to call the doctor. The had me remove the dressing which revealed Blisters all along the incision area and the rest of the arm was swollen and covered with a raised red rash. Since I had the surgery done and hour and a half away from where I live, the sent me to the ER at the local hospital. They thought I had a bacterial infection so started dosing me with IV antibiotics which did no good. After 2 trips to my doctor, and several prescriptions, my arm is finally on the mend. I was finally prescribed oral prednisone after the prescription cortizone cream failed to work. I was also prescribed a high dose of antihistimine. I still have a problem with going into the sun or heat. As soon as I walk outside and the sun hits my skin, I get the rash adn itching all over again. Hopefully this will be a temporary thing. It said on the Chloraprep web site that if this happens to contact your doctor because it could be something else..........going to research that!|

|Had major foot reconstruction (first sugery of my life) including a plate and donor bone and pins and they used Chloraprep. They removed my surgical dressings after one week. The entire soul of my foot and all my toes were Blistered into one massive raised area. The surgeon saw me a few weeks later and the whole soul was brownish black. He freaked a little and sent me to a dermatoligist specialist. He suspected chemical burn but took a skin sample to also check for anything further. Well after 7 weeks, the entire soul of my foot peeled bit by bit. Now it is a huge bright red and tender area. No itching though. But it is sore and burns a bit. Now the dermatologist says it is not a chemical burn . . . I "just have psoriasis"! Right! Like I believe that - NOT! I am now in my eighth week and the redness is still there and so is the tenderness. I am allergic to steroids so they have prescribed a substitute cream which costs over $300 AFTER my insurance (which is good insurance)!! So I didn't get it. This has really messed up my foot and so far my healing process, as it is a bit hard to try therapy and to start walking when the soul of your foot has been burnt!|

|Had knee arthroscopy on September 22nd and am still dealing with the rash on October 5th. I suspect it's mostly subsided because the itch is somewhat bearable now. The first thing I noticed was an odd skin reaction above the knee and away from my incisions. I thought someone "slipped" with their instrument because it looked almost like something scraped my skin. Later that day, the site began to itch and the bumps were bright red and Blistery looking. The itching soon became absolutely intense and quickly spread over my entire leg except for my knee (basically, everywhere the prep was used). Eventually, the bumps recessed into the skin while remaining very visible and then, to my dismay, started to appear on my other leg. I don't know if this was caused by residual prep in the skin breaks from scratching or what. Had visit with my surgeon today and he prescribed a Cortizone pill series that he said will knock the rash right out. I sure hope so, because this was truly not fun!|

|I had surgery to repair my distal bicep tendon. The doctors applied Chloraprep to my left arm, from the wrist to the shoulder. Two days after the procedure, I started itching just under the edges of the dressing. I went to the doctor the next day, he removed the dressing, to discover a major red Blistery rash, over the entire surface of the arm. He swabbed the arm with alcohol, and applied a much lighter dressing. I was given a steroid series, and told the rash would go away. As per doctors reccomendations, I removed the dressing when I got home. The rash is strange. I can actually watch Blisters forming before my eyes. I sure hope this medication works fast, this situation is miserable. If you don't know if you are allergic to this prep, be sure something else is used on your skin.|

|I have had a pic line site in twice , once in July and now another in December to treat my Lyme symptoms. After four weeks of having the 1st pic, I developed a red itchy rash that only got worst, as a result the line was pulled and for the rest of that treatment I was given meds via IV. After 6 weeks the rash was still coming up on every Iv site and pic line site. Chloroprep was used in every instance. Now I have a new site and I've developed a red itchy rash which turned in to angry oozing Blisters around the site and the rest of my arm. It is unbearable! I was treated with 2 weeks of a Medrol pac , (steroids) Zyrtec twice a day and now an even stronger prescribed antihistamine. The rash calmed down a bit..but returned fully within a day of being off of the steroids. I've since stopped the steroids because I gained 10 lbs in a week. Now the bumps are spreading down my arm and has since spread to the other arm and other parts of my body. I am so miserable and looking for an alternative to chloropreop. I also have a sensitivity to betadine (iodine). I have to keep the pic in for at least another month and there is still not much relief. We have since stopped using the chloroprep all over my arm, but not sure what to use to maintain the integrity of the pic line site. I did have the doctor not wrap the whole upper arm and started to use Gold Bond intensive healing cream and it has provided extensive healing. All of a sudden last night without provocation the rash is coming up again and the itching is unbearable. My body has absorbed the chloroprep and it seems to be holding on to it. The rash is spreading rapidly and I am at my wits end. Also important to mention I have a latex allergy and am having a reaction to all types of adhesive. We are not using tape but a small piece of latex free tegaderm which it appears I'm allergic to as well. If anyone is experiencing similar issues please and has solutions please respond.|

|I had surgery almost four weeks ago. I had a bump removed from my right wrist. I had it in a bandage and it felt as though my hand and wrist were going to explode. When the doctor, after one week, took off the bandage, I had Blisters, and total redness. My arm, wrist was very swollen and felt like they were on fire. Well, the redness is turning brownish black and as I try to use my wrist and hand more, the burning is intense. The scare looks like a burn. I have not started therapy. I am going to see a specialist this week to get to the bottom of this. This is horrible.|

|After my beast biopsy in 7/11, I experienced a severe rash with raised bumps Blistering that manifested 3 to 4 days after the biopsy. The itching was unbearable. At first I thought it was the surgical tape but then it started to spread over my entire side of my breast and to the inside of my arm. I was seen by several doctors that had no clue as to how or why it was happening. Finally, a dermatologist prescribed a steroid topical cream along with a antihistamine. It took over two weeks to resolve. I then had a bilateral mastectomy the following month and very specifically told them NO TAPE, but the same rash happened on an even larger scale, over both breasts along with my abdomen. The Blistering is similar to a 2nd degree burn with raised red bumps and itching. It seemed to be worse in areas that were covered even though no tape was used. It was then I put it together that is must have been the surgery wash used. Chloraprep was used both times with the same horrendous rash as a result. I think the reaction is more common than is being reported and is not taken seriously. The surgeons looked at me as if I was crazy. I'm now dealing with both post op pain along with this horrid rash that could have been avoided.|
