Dads Tarceva Rash

My sister, Lisa, posted last week that my dad had an awful facial rash from the Tarceva. His oncologist put him on topical Clindamycin and 4 days later it is all but gone. Does the rash come back? Or do people typically get it only at the beginning of treatment?

My rash comes and goes. It was the worst at first. It all but went away for a while. It has come back again but not quite so bad. I tried the Clindamycin when I was on Iressa and it was not much help at all. The good lotions seemed to do the best for me.

I was on Iressa but got the rash and clindamyacin worked for me. I went from 100's of tiny zits to about 10. My rash came and went and I continued to you the clindamyacin every other day for the entire 8 months on was on Iressa.

For me the rash came and went but was always present to some extent. Mine was worst the first 3 months and then it seemed to settle down.

Glad to hear your dad is getting some relief!
