Can novacaine or the content of a filling cause skin rashes and hives?

If you are prone to allergies then anything that irritates skin (including gums) can cause an allergic-type reaction. And tetanus shots can most definitely cause a reaction. Benadryl every four hours for 24-48 hours should clear it all up. Also take Benadryl before going to the dentist or getting a shot and the reaction will be minimised.

No, benzacaine and novacaine are chemically unrelated to cocaine, the names share a similar ending because they are all local aesthetics.

A cat's urine does not cause rashes. Cat's like to urinate in a litter box or a sand box if outside.

It is very unlikely, but yes, because any cosmetic products may cause you to have a reaction and produce rashes on your skin.
