Just wondering if anyone else had this experience and could offer some tips.
Once chemo began and I lost my hair I discovered a few pimples along the hair line in the back of my neck. A couple of days later my entire head was full of pimples. Not only was I a bald woman, I was a pimply bald woman. grrrr !!!
Anyway, once chemo ended my hair starting growing back in about 2 months and the pimples went away. The hair on my legs started to go as well and after my first shave, pimples appeared all over the front of my legs. I've gone to the dermatologist, and the gyn/onc has looked at it. The derm said it was folliculitis like the pimples on my head.
He prescribed minocyline and a prescription strength cream like hydracordisone but 2 months later I can't get rid of it.
I suspect my immune system is still out of whack from the chemo.
Any ideas ?
