I have very sensitive skin, so my surgeon warned me that I might have a reaction to the surgical glue. Sure enough, about 2 weeks post-surgery I got a red, bumpy rash near the incisions. It has spread beyond the incisions, since the glue is coming off now, but isn’t really itchy anymore—just a bunch of raised, red bumps. The doctor advised to just use gentle cleansing (basically because she was worried I’d be allergic to any cream she could give me
). If it’s the glue setting off the rash, then It should dissipate on its own as the glue sluffs off. My reaction started about 2 weeks after surgery, though, not 6 weeks later.
The rash in the skin folds sounds different, so that could be a yeast or fungal infection—especially since it’s been more than a month and coincided with humid weather. My friend had a similar sounding rash in the folds of her neck, and got a cream from her GP, but I don’t know the name of it...
I have a nickel allergy—For me nickel contact feels ‘fuzzy’ to my skin, it causes a rash very quickly, and if it’s more internal (like fillings or earrings) I get a headache. I’ve never had a rash last more than a day after nickel.
Since you’re still having issues, and your surgeon was so dismissive, I’d see your GP, or an urgent care doc—they can likely set your mind at ease and give you either a prescription for the possible yeast/fungal infection, or aim you towards a doctor who can help. Sorry you’re going thru this!
