My boyfriend is going through strong chemotherapy treatments via port and I am concerned that the chemotherapy can effect my health through the exchange of body fluids, specifically saliva. I have recently formed a rash around my lips that seems to be severe chapping but is fairly sore and I am wondering if anyone can tell me if this could be a result of his therapies. He is being cycled through 6 months of bi weekly treatments lasting 3 days per treatment. He is also being given a drug that I don't know the name of that causes him to go numb when eating anything cold.
I hope there is someone who can help me shed some light on this. The doctors say not to worry but that's easire said than done with a burning rash on my mouth. By the way, I have no history of cold sores and neither does he which adds to my concern for myself and also his health.
