SandraL Posted October 16, 2008 Share Posted October 16, 2008 Wow! Have I got one! All over my body and growing. And in my nose, and in my ears and in my scalp and so on. Just hundreds and hundreds of outbreaks, bright red spots all over. More acneish on my face. It was a bit amusing to begin with as I joked with my daughter about going through puberty with her. It isn't funny any more. It is painful, awful looking and terribly itchy. I am using a good face cream and hydrocortosone cream in the bad spots. I spoke to a med onc yesterday (mine is still on vacation) and she suggested I go off of tarceva for a few days to see if it settles down. Because it can't go on like this, I can't stand it much longer. I have started an antibiotic for the rash and also for a bacterial infection (vaginal bleeding problem of last week, apparently not cancer related). Between the rash and the infection I am wiped right out and I do not feel like going anywhere except where duty absolutely calls. Any tips for getting through the tough part of the rash? thanks in advance for your help Sandra Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
