I had a and/pelvis ct with infusion. About 10 hours later I noticed a rash on my face which has spread to numerous parts of my body. I also had the stomach flu about 4 days prior to my ct. I m wondering which is more likely, a viral rash or reaction to the contrast and what s my best way to treat?
Your symptoms seem to be related to an allergic reaction to the contrast. I suggest using antihistamines such as Cetirizine 10 mg daily. If the symptoms continue, I suggest using to consult your doctor for prescription steroids.
Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
