A weird question

I have a weird question that I'm hoping someone knows something about. Ever since my chemo, when I break a sweat, it stings like getting in the ocean with raw skin. Tiny little needles pricking me. Really uncomfortable and interferes with my wanting to exercise. Has anyone else had this?

I never experienced this but I'm sorry you're having problems after chemo (when did you finish it, BTW?). Are you menopausal or pre-menopausal? If you finished chemo a while ago already I recommend you see your Dr. and ask to see a specialist (maybe an endocrinologist?) to investigate the cause of your present condition. I hope it gets better for you. Please keep us posted.

Hugs

I finished chemo last December. And finished Herceptin 6 weeks ago. I didn't think to ask my doc. Kinda felt stupid. Oh, and I'm menopausal. Not having menopausal symptoms at all. Really blessed there. My cancer was ER/PR - so not on hormonal treatment.

I haven't heard of this, but it almost sounds like it could be an allergic reaction? Did you use a new deodorant or detergent? If not, I would ask a dermatologist.

No rash or anything. Just stings where I sweat. Forehead to feet. No different soap or anything. This summer I could only do water aerobics. This isn't great for Arkansas. We sweat a lot here! Thank God summer is over.
