Doxil and Redness

Hello, I have had three treatments of Doxil and handling it well with the exception of a redness that has started under my arms. It doesn't itch but is more like a sunburn. Has anyone experienced this before? If so, what was used to relieve the pain and redness? Thank you all for being here. It is so helpful to have others to ask who have the same experiences. God Bless You All.

You may want to try Eucerin lotion. I was told that it's extremely soothing. You can find it at the local drug store (CVS etc..).
Take Care.
