From Mira Loma, California, USA:

My grandson receives Lantus at bedtime and has recently been breaking out with red blotches and a raised skin rash immediately after his injection. His blood sugars are also higher than usual in the morning so he has to receive corrective dose before breakfast. Is this a reaction to the Lantus?


Local reactions to insulin are well described. If he is describing urticaria at the site, then it may be. Obviously, it if is just a rash, any guess is right.
