I have posted about the rash on my tkr knee before. Ive had the rash almost from surgery in November last year. Surgeon who did op said allergic reaction to the metal is "almost unheard of" but I sought a 2nd opinion with an emiment surgeon privately. He told me the same,that there were no known cases of this happening. Said it was "incisional folliculitis" to do with the drainage. Also that it would probably clear in time. He prescribed me antibiotics. Flucloxacillin. One weeks supply . No drastic change in the rash after 3 days but I am more reassured that this is nothing worse. He also noted that the rash is only on one side of the scar. . Posting this in reply to all the kind members who have tried to help. Any further comments or questions appreciated.
