Benzalkonium Chloride AllergyUpdated
I found out that I was allergic to this when my dentist put desensitizer on my teeth...my lips swelled like a duck! I am also a scrub nurse and been having trouble with the CHG scrub and the cavacide.... I found a relation to the cavacide to benzalkonium...however I am interested in finding out if this drug is related to any similar families that would also make me swell. I am slowly finding answers...also I have never been given the TDaP shot until 2 days ago and my lips swelled again like a duck... Any chance you could help me with a relation between this drug and any others?
You would actually be better served to see an allergist/immunologist, so you can be tested for specific allergens, and discover what to avoid.
For example, there is a chance you might be allergic to an additive in something, rather than the active substance itself, and such an additive might be in many other products, as well as some food items. Thus, testing is really the only proper way to find an answer, and work out a solution.
You also might do well taking allergy shots, for awhile, to help build resistance to your trigger allergens. Though allergy shots may cause side effects, such as injection site reaction, irritation, dizziness, and drowsiness.
Additionally, you should most likely get a prescription for an Epi Pen, since oral swelling can be very dangerous.
Are you on any medications? Have you consulted your personal doctor?
