My diagnosis is sarcomatoid RCC with mets in lungs, spot on liver and probable bone involvement. Have had one infusion of Zometa. I am taking Votrient 800 mg and developed a rash over 60-70 of my body which is slowly clearing up but the itch is terrible and responds minimally to Sarna. Does anyone have any suggestions? Many thanks. John S in Tacoma, WA.

    I have similar with Sutent

    Benedryl? I'm now trying cortizone cream.

    Thank you. I have tried both with minimal relief. The rash has started to fade after about 2 weeks.
