Could this be an iodine reaction?

Could this be an iodine reaction?  My mother recently had a CT scan but the contrast infiltrated her tissue rather than going into the vein.  Swelling in the arm was immediate and "expected."  However her blood pressure spiked, she had uncontrollable shaking episodes and her whole body became swolen during the following week.  The doctors are just treating her for high blood pressure but I can't help but wonder if all of this is a reaction to iodine because I myself had a total body swelling reaction to IV dye several years ago, without any noticeable skin rash symptoms.
