Re: Allergic reaction to mastisol - post op ACDF

Hello,
Looks like we had surgery the same day! I too started to react to the adhesive. First it was from the tegaderm then from the steri strips/mastasol. I removed them because I know all too well what can happen. I didn't let it go too long when I started itching. I knew what was happening. My incision was not draining and looked good so I removed them and now have nothing covering it. I work for the surgeon who did my surgery so I just let them know what was going on. He said I did exactly the right thing. You are not alone.
