Baby oil. But I’d think there would be many more allergens  in baby oil than there would be in hypoallergenic gel. Have her bring one of her lotions from home and give it a shot.

We have a patient coming in today that states she is allergic to ultrasound gel. Her records indicate that it causes a rash. Has anyone ever encountered this and what can we use instead?

 

Thanks!
