Has Anyone Had To Reschedule Surgery Due To An Eczema Outbreak?

Has Anyone Had To Reschedule Surgery Due To An Eczema Outbreak?

I remember when I had knee surgery several years ago, I had to wash with a special soap and was cautioned about having surgery with a cut or infection. Since my other knee is squawking and will need replacing soon, I'm wondering if eczema would be an issue here.

I m due to have a hip operation in a couple of wks and am concerned that if I have a slight break in the skin they may cancel my op....the drs said that they won’t operate if it’s bad due to risk of infection.

my daughter had foot surgery on both feet, she has eczema pretty bad on her feet and we got them in pretty good shape prior to surgery, but in the cast it got bad the first time she had surgery, also she had infection at surgical site. For the second foot we went every week to change her cast and reapply lotions and that worked much better for her ecxema, however, she still got a surgical wound infection, which we expected. Her doctor was amazing!!

Yes, that is what I was wondering. It's an interesting dilemma and is potentially frustrating. It's not like we have complete control over eczema outbreaks, if we did, it wouldn't be an issue.
