I can only imagine what might have happened if my husband and advocate had not been with me, and I had ingested the CAT scan dye. Today I carry a medical alert bracelet engraved with my medication allergies.
It's not a good idea to diagnose drug allergies without seeing the patient. First, it is very difficult to describe a rash over the phone. Are the spots pink or red? Are they raised or flat? Are they isolated or do they appear in groups?
