Allergic to cocaine

I picked up a chart recently and it was a middle aged man with a laceration on his hand.  I noticed that under allergies, he had written “cocaine.”

I asked him what happens with it, and he said, “It’s the strangest thing doc.  Every time I use cocaine, I break out in handcuffs.”
