Long Term Welts and Rashes from Dysport?

had 85U of Dysport in frown lines, forehead lines and crows feet. 2weeks later I got two red angry rash spots on my left leg. After a week they cleared up but were replaced by a welt/rash with teensy blisters in it. That cleared up in a week but was replaced with 2 more itchy welts on my back. They cleared up in a week but now have been replaced by a HUMONGOUS welt/swelling (and getting bigger!) on my right arm below my elbow.too much Dysport or common allergic reaction? Provider seemed unfazed!

Dysport and rashes

You should return to your injector for assessment.  If your injector was a dermatologist, he can examine your skin and determine the problem.

Dysport rash

It is possible that the timing was a coincidence. You should see your dermatologist and have this evaluated. A biopsy of the "rash" might be helpful. I have never seen an allergic reaction to this and this presentation does not fit with that concept very well. However, anything is possible.
