simple cure for allergic reaction to betadine

Had my first surgery ever last week and found out the hard way that I am allergic to betadine. First day after sugery, I thought the itching was due to painkillers and swelling because of surgery. After 2 days, went home and itching and swelling became worse and even more inflamed after washing. It felt like I had a chemical burn. My skin was covered in red welts, swollen, burning and itching. Could not get a hold of surgeon and Primary Caregiver prescribed prednisone. Went home and looked up prednisone online and found that it delays wound healing. Nice. I tried benadryl which helped ease the itching. Aloe vera helped a little as well, though was waking up every morning with skin back to insane inflammation and redness/swelling. Finally tried applying apple cider vinegar with a cotton ball. It worked like a miracle. The welts/hives laid right down and the lacy rash vanished within minutes. I wish I had taken photographs. I feel foolish for not having thought of it sooner. Apple cider vinegar immeidately cured my allergic reaction to betadine.

Re: simple cure for allergic reaction to betadine


I'm glad you were able to find something that helped with your symptoms. Of course it's important that women call their doctors for medical advice, before trying anything suggested, just to be on the safe side.

HysterSisters is a wonderful community for information and support whether you're seeking to avoid a hysterectomy, or if you are scheduled for or recovering from that surgery. Let us know if you need help finding the appropriate forum for your specific circumstances.

Best wishes!
