1-30876334 - The reporter, the spouse of the patient, indicated that her husband may have been exposed to an insecticidal product containing the active ingredient permethrin. The reporter indicated that her husband applied this product while wearing gloves, shorts and a short sleeved shirt one day prior to initial contact. The patient does not remember getting the product on his skin or inhaling the product but shortly after applying the product he developed non-itchy hives on his face, torso and legs. Nine days prior to initial contact the patient had heart surgery for stent placement. The patient has been on medications since that time but the patients pharmacist does not believe that these medications would cause hives. The patient does have known allergies to dust and takes Flonase. The reporter was advised that there are several possible causes of hives including sensitivities to medications or environmental agents. It was recommended that the patient discontinue use of the product if it is suspected to be the cause for the reaction and to seek medical attention for the worsening hives. On callback 4 days later the patient indicated that he went to the doctor where he was given topical cortisone cream and his symptoms are improving. The underlying cause for his reaction had not yet been identified. No further information is available.
