Had breast augmentation and mini tummy tuck a week ago. Went to the doctor for check up yesterday (he already had been informed of my allergy to adhesives). My incisions looked good so he removed steri strips and then I felt him "brush" on something and apply tape to my tummy tuck incision. I looked up and saw the bottle of Mastisol. I said "Oh My god!

I had surgery 3 weeks ago and I have had severe allergic reaction, blisters and rash. The itching and burning has been intolerable despite benadryl, hydrocortisone and other treatments. I have never been allergic to anything in my entire life and i seriously believe that MASTISOL should be banned!

The physician (s) I saw gave me a number of treatments to try. Nothing worked better than per ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
Applied to my skin postop even though I told doctor I had a sensitivity to adhesives. Two days later, my skin was extremely itchy. Was told to take Benedryl. Didn't help severe itching, went to surgeon who removed bandages and stated my reaction was the worst he'd ever seen. Skin had white bumps all over. Told to take steriods and frequent showers to get it off my skin. That night, I ... Show Full Comment
