I am new to the site and in need of some advice. I was diagnosed in June 2001, had surgery with a full hysterectomy and have been on and off chemo ever since. During the last several months, while on Topotecan and now Doxil, I started having some issues with my face breaking out. Has anyone else experienced this on chemo or is this part of menopause? My skin is dry and flaky in the morning and I have breakouts on my nose, cheeks and forehead. It is strange since I never had skin problems as a teenager. I wash my face in the morning and at night but only use moisturizer in the morning. If anyone else has gone through this, it would be great to know if there is something I can use which will take care of it. I know this is minor compared to what my body is going through but at least I might be able to do something about this.
Thanks for being there and for this site!
