Chloraprep Skin Irritation Causes and Reviews


Hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) is a chronic skin disease. It can occur in one or multiple areas of your body. HS usually develops in your armpits, groin, and anal area. It causes long-term skin inflammation and can be painful.

Symptoms include

  • Blackheads and red, tender bumps, called abscesses. The abscesses get bigger, break open, and leak pus
  • Tunnels that form under the skin between abscesses
  • Scarring

No one knows what causes HS. It is more common in women, African Americans, and people who have had acne. It usually starts after the teenage years. Treatments include antibiotics, anti-inflammatory medicines, and sometimes surgery. Losing weight or wearing looser clothing may help some patients avoid skin irritation.

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.
