Has anyone ever had skin suddenly start to feel extra sensitive..almost like a severe sunburn without the heat, after having chemo and radiation? and not necessarily in the areas you were irradiated?? what did you do for it?

    My skin would always get extremely sensitive about 4 days after chemo. It started from my neck and then spread to my arms and back. It usually only lasted for a few days. Unfortunately I could not figure out any way to make it better. I would just try to wear loose clothing and try to stay still as much as possible.
