Allergic reaction to dettol
Hi I'm allergic to dettol/savlon and develop rashes and red spots when applied on skin. A couple days ago I went for a skin prick allergy test and they cleaned my skin with an agent that probably had the same ingredient as dettol/savlon, thus triggering the allergic reaction. Both my forearms have a red rash and red spots and they are very itchy.

Hello.....  This is quite rare..  But you are allergic  to antiseptic solution itself.. So should  avoid  it..  Check  if you  are allergic  to soap  or not??  Some  people  are allergic  to different things..  Whenever you go to hospital  you must  open  up about this allergiec history......
