Thank you very much for the photo and the clarification .

Yes hit is an allergy to the Clear sticky patch that they put to hold the IV in place.

You should use Over the counter Cortaid and Neosporin ointment on the area which are to be mixed and applied twice a day for 10 days

You can take over the counter Claritine 10 mg at night to help heal the area faster.

Do you Agree with what I have mentioned ?

Please do get back to me in case of any further queries.
