Has anyone ever had a reaction to CT contrast medium.
I had a CT scan last Thursday. The following day I noticed a pinprick like rash over both forearms. I dismissed it as 'seeing things'. I went about my daily business until night fall when I went to wash my hands in the bathroom. I saw in the mirror I had a rash all over my chest. On further investigation it was all over my body, sparing only hands, feet and face. It was even all over my back. Since then I have been itching all over. I called my doctor and she told me take phenergen, which I did. I have had short episodes of relief from zinc oxide powder. It is now driving me mad. Does anyone have any ideas on how to relieve this heat and prickly rash???
