Had a small cancer removed. Mastisol was applied to hold bandage in place. The area felt itchy almost immediately but was instructed to leave bandage on for 14 days. After 3 days I couldn't stand it! 15 days later I still have blister like hives on the area.

I had to have my chin reconstructed due to an accident in October 2010. They put this rub thing over my incision and chin. It was put on with a Mastisol glue. Found out I was allergic to the Mastisol glue. Chin and neck broke out in a red rash and itched like heck. I was a mess.

Comment:
Mastisol Liquid Adhesive was used too seal my bandage after a small surgery on my chest to remove a cancer. As soon as I got home (15 minutes after the surgery) I started to feel burning and tingling. I brushed it off because my doctor said to not take the bandage off for 7 days.
