Chloraprep Chemical Injury Causes and Reviews


Inhalation injuries are acute injuries to your respiratory system and lungs. They can happen if you breathe in toxic substances, such as smoke (from fires), chemicals, particle pollution, and gases. Inhalation injuries can also be caused by extreme heat; these are a type of thermal injuries. Over half of deaths from fires are due to inhalation injuries.

Symptoms of inhalation injuries can depend on what you breathed in. But they often include

  • Coughing and phlegm
  • A scratchy throat
  • Irritated sinuses
  • Shortness of breath
  • Chest pain or tightness
  • Headaches
  • Stinging eyes
  • A runny nose

If you have a chronic heart or lung problem, an inhalation injury can make it worse.

To make a diagnosis, your health care provider may use a scope to look at your airways and check for damage. Other possible tests include imaging tests of the lungs, blood tests, and lung function tests.

If you have an inhalation injury, your health care provider will make sure that your airway is not blocked. Treatment is with oxygen therapy, and in some cases, medicines. Some patients need to use a ventilator to breathe. Most people get better, but some people have permanent lung or breathing problems. Smokers and people who had a severe injury are at a greater risk of having permanent problems.

You can take steps to try to prevent inhalation injuries:

  • At home, practice fire safety, which includes preventing fires and having a plan in case there is a fire
  • If there is smoke from a wildfire nearby or lots of particulate pollution in the air, try to limit your time outdoors. Keep your indoor air as clean as possible, by keeping windows closed and using an air filter. If you have asthma, another lung disease, or heart disease, follow your health care provider's advice about your medicines and respiratory management plan.
  • If you are working with chemicals or gases, handle them safely and use protective equipment

I had surgery a month ago and it tooks 13 days for it to come out.  I ended up taking m-pak and it was gone in 2 days

My husband underwent surgery to repair an umbilical hernia on 2/10/12, a Friday. He was instructed to apply Hibiclens (which contains the same active ingredient as Chloraprep) the morning of his surgery (which he did). Whether or not it was reapplied by the OR nurses just prior to surgery, we don't know (probably - they had to clean it with something), but by Saturday morning we noticed a rash all over his abdomen and around his waist, as he had been up all night itching. He is still itching like crazy - tiny zit-like bumps everywhere the Hibiclens was applied. The rash is spreading, and some of the bumps have 'pus' inside them. Most are just itchy and red. Benadryl has NOT helped. When we called the surgeon, he tried to blame the rash on Percocet, even though my husband had never before suffered a reaction to that medication, and even though the rash was 'concentrated' in the areas the Hibiclens was applied. He even stopped the Percocet for a day just to see, and the rash continues to worsen - so it's NOT the percocet. This is crazzzy...

i had my gallbladder remove  on 1/25/12 and I have red swollen bumps all round my naval and it itich

Wed, 18 Apr 2012

Shingles like intense itching and burning developed on area where Chloraprep was used for surgery. Not allayed by oral or topical Benadryl. Much worse than the pain of the surgery. Called the manufacturer who stated that they have few report of side effects - contrary to indications from patient online comments!

Sun, 18 Mar 2012

I had breast biopsy surgery and 3 days later I started seeing red bumps on my chest. They started to go up my neck almost to my chin and the burning and itching did not let me rest. I thought it was the percocet given for pain so I stopped taking it. The rash continued to get worse. I looked up natural remedies cause the topical Benedryl was not working. I use cooled down Chamomile tea and apply with a cotton pad. Tried olive oil and it worked the 1st apllication only. I'm going to try Aloe next to see if relieves the itch. What's getting me nervous is I just found redness near the incision point.
