minor reactions usually resolve in afew days to a few weeks. In some
instances, these reactions may be related to factors other than insulin,
such as irritants in a skin cleansing agent or poor injection technique.

insulin, which may cause rash over the whole body, shortness of breath,
wheezing, reduction in blood pressure, rapid pulse, or sweating. Severe
cases of generalized allergy, including anaphylactic reaction, may be
life threatening. In controlled trials, pruritus (with or without rash)
was seen in 17 patients receiving Humalin R (N=2969) and 30 patients
