Bonnie, you said to start the baths after the 7th day of infustion or start right from day 1?

I used the cold or cool footbaths right away. But I didn't find out about the instant ocean until I was having the hand/foot syndryom. Then I would take a tepid bath in it after the 5-7 avoidance of anything warm. Seemed to help heal the areas that already had the rash and stop it from getting worse. The biggest thing is NOT to do anything that would be HOT or wear anything that Rubs or Binds. Maybe you will be one of the people that don't get this rash. Let's pray that is the case. Keep us posted on how you are doing. Prayers N Hugs Bonnie
