History: Caller states her husband applied the product on 7-28-07, "may have gotten some on him." On approx. 8-1-07 he was "broken out with a rash all over arms, back, pelvis, and lips, has bumps that are terribly itchy." States he has "used this product a lot before" with no reaction. Symptoms continue unresolved at this time, patient has spoken with his HCP over the phone regarding the matter, was told the reaction was not due to any of his medications. Assessment: - Direct skin exposure can lead to local irritation (typically a stinging or tingling sensation), however onset of symptoms would be expected to be approximetly 1-2 hrs from exposure, would be expected to improve after washing skin, and would be expected to resolve within 24hrs from exposure. - Recommended caller continue to follow up with HCP for evaluation and treatment. 09/03/2007 Follow-Up Caller said that he is doing fine. He saw his MD and he said that he is allergic to "something" but unsure what. He was given a shot and the rash cleared up about 5-7 days later. Close case Note: Based on the toxicologic profile of the product and the temporal relationship to alleged contact/effect in the incident description, the symptoms alleged would be inconsistent with what would be expected from the described product contact.
