Soft tissue mass removed from soles on the plantar faschia, rash, water bumps, itching near incision. On steroid pills, creams. Allergic to mesh?

I had a soft- tissue mass removed from the bottom of my foot on the plantar faschia. My doctor used some type of mesh to hold everything together. The incision has healed wonderfully but I have a 3 x 3 or so area of rash with little water bumps and severe itching on both sides of the incision. I believe I may be allergic to the mesh he implanted. I ve tried steriod creams and steriod pills but the problem persists and is driving me crazy. What can be done?

Hi, thanks for writing to HCM.

All your symptoms are suggestive of an allergic reaction (as you thought).

Antihistamine medications taken for a few days may help in alleviating your itching.

I suggest you to consult your treating physician for an accurate diagnosis.

Hope this information is helpful. Good day
