Have developed a rash around the exit area. LVAD coordinators have not recommended anything to relieve the itch. Can anyone help me. Thanks

Rash at driveline site

My people suggested a hydrocortisone cream, applied with a Q-tip and left on under the new bandage. Ask your pharmacist for a brand name. I tried it a couple times, but maybe even more important was we experimented with the different "washers" that go around the driveline to see if I was allergic to the antiseptics, and now we're currently not using any.
