Rash

Hi, I'm SUSAN K D.

I received my port on Friday and Saturday I ended up with a rash. from my head to my tushie. a little itchy but not unbearable. Has anyone else had this? I did not go to the ER as it is super expensive. Hubby picked up some anti itch cream for me if it gets worse.

Hi, I'm Betti

You may be allergic to it or something they used during the install. Do you have a minor emergency care clinic where you live as they are cheaper than a regular ER?

Hi, I'm SUSAN K D.

went in Monday for my “education” and talked to the nurse. she asked if I was allergic to the heprin…never had it before so I don’t know. So she said we will see when I go for my first treatment as they will use a little bit once again. so I just used the anti itch cream and it was fine. thank you for your comment :)

Hi, I'm Betti

Glad you found out what caused the rash. They use Heprin after flushing my port with saline to keep it open. Take care of yourself, Betti
