My sister has broken out in a hive like rash

My sister has broken out in a hive like rash after a shoulder joint replacement. This happened 4 days after surgery. We think it is a betadine allergy, but want to know what treatments are available. She is 72, has hoshimotos disease. The welts are rather large and extremely itchy. Redness in face, chilling with no fever no respiratory distress.

I ve just been started in Invokana for my high blood sugar, and left home on a trip. I ve now broken out in a hive like rash between my buttocks cheeks that itches badly. I think I should discontinue Invokana, or would this rash possible be temporary and go away on its own. This rash or hives appears on the list of potential side effects of this drug.

My 13 year old daughter was just at the dermatologist for a hive like rash on her legs and arms x 3 weeks... The Dr said she thought it was her body s reaction to having the gene that can cause diabetes and/or thyroid disorders and such. She gave me a clinical term for this condition and did a biopsy. Are you familiar with this???.....and if so, what is the clinical term for this condition?
