I have seen a rxn to the gel on a scleroderma patient once, very sensitive skin.
When I see the red/dry skin , this can be on chemo patients also, I try to use minimal gel for their comfort.
I used the clear when I worked with Dr Bergan because many of our patients had complicated issues and
I just liked to keep the dyes out of the picture entirely.

Subject: Re: medichoice gel/one the lighter side for a friday
i did have someone tell me their patient had a reaction to the gel..... someone who had multiple studies and the only thing that changed was gel
This is just a minor thing, but have you noticed that those getting medichoice gel , the gel is really blue?
I actually had alittle stain on the machine that it didn’t get cleaned off right away.
I know some don’t care much, but I like to try to keep my equipment clean. I use to get the clear, but my hospital
group does the mass ordering so I don’t have a choice.
This last batch was bright! Maybe they are getting into
glow in the dark gels? UMMMM that maybe a marketing thing.
