Horrible rash, because of silicone???
I broke out Sunday night in a bad rash. At first, I thought it was mosquito bites. It started on my right arm as little bumps, looked and felt just like bug bites. I woke up b/c I was itching so much. Come morning, I was covered in them, and itching like crazy. As the day progressed, I broke out in more bumps, which swelled bigger and got redder, and were soon ALL OVER my body!
I realized that these could not possibly be mosquito bites and went to see my doctor. The first thing he asked me was if I had saline or silicone implants. I immdiatley said saline, and we dismissed the possibility of an allergic reaction to silicone.
He then referred me to a dermatologist the same day, and it clicked in my head that my implants do have a silicone shell! I mentioned this, and she thought it is a definite possibility, but not likely
The rashes have cleared up some since given a prescription steroid, but now I'm really worried.
If I was allergic to silicone, wouldn't it have shown up sooner?
