Rash on stomach after tubal ligation but the rash is only where the iodine was used?

Apply Benadryl (diphenhydramine) cream. You can take Benadryl (diphenhydramine) by mouth if desired. It is not an unusual finding. Wash thoroughly with plain soap and water then apply the cream. Not usually long lasting or consequential. remember to mention it if you have surgery again. They can use non-iodine scrubs.
