Can anyone tell me if they have had skin problems since being treated with radiation and also chem.? My last treatments were in February of 2007. I have problems with my skin easily bruising and tearing. Just a slight rub on something causes blood to collect under my skin and make a purplish spot on my skin. This is on my hands, arms, fingers and legs. I understand that my skin may be thin due to my age (61) and years of sun exposure without using sunscreen. Also my mother had skin problems such as this. My were minor however before radiation and chem. and are becoming more serious now. Can anyone share anything on this?
