Melenoma and yervoy

My hudband just started taking yervoy. We've only had one treatment. He developed a severe rash after 1 week. Started taking steroids and they seem to be helping some. Curious what others are doing to help with the horrible itching? Also would like to hear others stories about their yervoy treatment and what side effects they have experienced. We are metastatic melenoma stage 3a. Thanks!

    We had doctor's pushing my husband to start yervoy s year ago for stage 3a melanoma as well.  After much discussion, he decided not to take the treatment.  Now a year later, those same doctor's have decided not to suggest yervoy anymore for stage 3a people because the dangerous side effects don't warrant it.  Just something to think about.
