Has anyone out there experienced the itchy rash which comes along with Hodgkins? What causes it, and what do you do to relieve it?
I had terribly itchy skin all over but i never had a visible rash develop. Once the chemo was in my system the whole body itchiness pretty much went away although now (post treatment a year almost) I do still get itchy on my chest and arms, but it is because of aggravated nerve endings from all the surgeries and things done on me (never mind the chemo and radiation)...how far along in treatments are you and where do you have it etc..?
Thanks for your reply. I'm going an alternative route for now. The itchy rash is basically on my entire belly area and my privates. It drives me absolutely crazy and wakes me at night. When I tried cortisone creams, my tumor grew!!! I learned this is because cortisone suppresses the immune system, and a strong immune system is what I need to reverse the cancer!!! I'm back on track now, sticking mainly with Shaklee products, which I can trust.
I had the itchy but no rash. The palms of my hands and the soles of my feet itched like crazy! I have no idea why unless it was my bodies way of telling me I was on my last nerve and to pay attention.
