Chloraprep Erythema Causes and Reviews


Fifth disease is a viral infection caused by parvovirus B19. The virus only infects humans; it's not the same parvovirus that dogs and cats can get. Fifth disease mostly affects children. Symptoms can include a low fever, cold symptoms, and a headache. Then you get a red rash on your face. It looks like a "slapped cheek." The rash can spread to the arms, legs, and trunk. Adults who get it might also have joint pain and swelling.

Fifth disease spreads easily, through saliva and mucus. You can get it when an infected person coughs or sneezes. Frequently washing your hands might help prevent getting the virus. Most people become immune to the virus after having it once.

Fifth disease is usually mild and goes away on its own. However, it can be serious if you

  • Are pregnant
  • Are anemic
  • Have cancer or a weak immune system

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...

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!

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.
