Iressa side effects


Recommended Posts


I don't know if you remember me, it has been a long time since I've posted.

My mother stopped chemo and is on a clinical trial with Iressa (it is still an experimental drug in Canada). She has a skin rash in her face and neck. Has anyone experienced this side effect?

Hi Anais, Of course I remember you. Have your mom try a very rich moisurizing lotion on the (you call that a rash!) rash. I know because it is like acne, you feel you need to dry it or treat it like acne, but it responds better to the opposite. Becky G recommended Udderly Smooth lotion, John uses the St Ives, Whipped Silk. It's not pleasant I know. Hope she is doing well.
