Comment:
After my sutures were removed post perineal tendon (both brevus and longus) mastisol was used to adhere steristrips over my incision. The entire area covered by mastisol was hugely blistered which has lengthened my recovery exponentially. The raw skin under the blister is now a bundle of nerves that are extremely painful. I am unable to stand anything to touch this area without excruciating pain. ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I have used this product twice. The first time was after surgery to remove a plate in my leg. A few days after surgery, the 8" long incision was surrounded by small red bumps that turned into small blisters. The surgeon did not know what was causing it, but treated me for an infection. Once that had run its course I began getting the small, itchy blister patches all over my body, continui ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
Mastisol was applied to my surgical site during a lumbar decompression. Withing 24 hours, I experienced severe itching, and within 48, I had a rash that swelled and blistered into the actual incision. This Acute Contact Dermatitis so compromised my skin that I subsequently contracted a systemic staph aureus infection that now requires 6 weeks of IV oxacillin. It's been a horrible experience. U ...
