Rash and Hives After Dysport - Los Angeles, CA
I posted this before but somehow it didn't...
- 30 Sep 2010
I posted this before but somehow it didn't show up, so I'll try again. I also filled out a form from Allergan but haven't heard back from them. I had dysport injected (80 units - including 5 in the chin)on June 18th for my forehead, 11's, and crows feet. Two weeks later this is what happened: Itchy Rash on left outer lower leg. Next day larger Itchy Rash on upper outer left leg. After one week this cleared up only to be replaced by an Itchy Welt near my left shoulder blade. Again, this cleared up in a week only to be replaced by two Itchy Red Welts - one near my right shoulder blade and one at the small of my back. These both cleared up in a week only to be replaced by a Larger Itchy Welt on my right elbow/arm area. This Welt got larger and larger.
I went back to my practitioner who is a highly known/recommended board certified plastic surgeon who specializes in this and he said he had never seen anything like it and he did not think that it was linked to the Dysport(?) and didn't seem too concerned. I don't know what else it could have been!? Said I should take some Benadryl - which I did and it cleared up and I was fine. The previous time I had received the injection I got a rash on my inner thighs (mild and lasted only a week or so), but I didn't connect the incidents until this last time. I will post some pics but I couldn't take pics of my back (those were small welts) but the elbow welt got even bigger after the pic was taken. It went from about my elbow to almost mid-arm. Reaction aside, I am happy with the results. I just hope that botox/dysport are not "out" for me or that there is another non-surgical alternative. Should I be worried?
