Chloraprep Postoperative Wound Infection Causes and Reviews


After any operation, you'll have some side effects. There is usually some pain with surgery. There may also be swelling and soreness around the area that the surgeon cut. Your surgeon can tell you which side effects to expect.

There can also be complications. These are unplanned events linked to the operation. Some complications are infection, too much bleeding, reaction to anesthesia, or accidental injury. Some people have a greater risk of complications because of other medical conditions.

Your surgeon can tell you how you might feel and what you will be able to do - or not do - the first few days, weeks, or months after surgery. Some other questions to ask are

  • How long you will be in the hospital
  • What kind of supplies, equipment, and help you might need when you go home
  • When you can go back to work
  • When it is ok to start exercising again
  • Are they any other restrictions in your activities

Following your surgeon's advice can help you recover as soon as possible.

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!

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.
