Itchy Blisters Around Steri Strips
I am 6 weeks post-op from TAH. Removed all 11 steri strips a few days ago and now have super itchy and red rash in the shape of steri strips...HELP!?
Too long: The steri strips probably should have been removed 5 weeks ago. Usually those are left on for less than a week. The area is probably very dirty and needs cleaning. You skin is probably very irritated from prolonged exposure to the adhesive. After washing some over the counter Benadryl cream should calm the tissue inflammation. ...Read more

I have a reaction to steri strips for my Achilles rupture surgery 2 weeks ago. What can I put on the hives? Itchy and painful, don't want to scratch.
See your surgeon: Achilles' tendon repair incisions can be 'tricky' as the tendon is nearly subcutaneous. Any non- healing wounds here or incisional 'rashes' should be seen by your surgeon promptly to avoid skin/ wound breakdown.In my experience the reaction to the steri-strips is usually a reaction to the benzoin used to keep the strips' sticky'and not the strips themselves. See your surgeon! Best of Luck! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I had an allergic reaction from steri strips after my port for chemo was put in. Strips are removed, but there are still blisters. What should I do?

Please protect the area from further irritation but nothing further is needed for now as the reaction seems localized to just the area affected by the steristrips. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Hello, I have oozing blotches on my face cheeks and tiny blisters around it, it is somewhat itchy and just happened, what could it be?
Skin eruption: Without seeing this would only be guessing, but contact dermatitis is possible as is a systemic allergic reaction.

I have pimple like blisters and they itch all around my body. What is it and how does it go away? Oh, my underarms are red and very itchy & spreading.
?scabies: It is so hard to guess and make statements to help you over the internet when it comes to rashes. In my office, when a kid is complaining of itching so severe like this all over body, I am very suspicious about scabies. You really need to have someone look at the rash, its distribution/pattern to help identify what it is. Only then can the appropriate treatment be initiated and relief found. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
