    Hair loss

    I didn't have any itching or rash, but several mambers did. See the link at https://csn.cancer.org/node/316593 for their comments.

    Foliculitis

    Luckyluke, I was the person who started the discussion thread that cmb shared above -- good of her to find it for you. I just thought I'd add that the topical antibiotic cream and the topical steroid cleared mine right up and it never happened again -- thank GOODNESS. I'd been miserable. It sounds like some folks' oncology offices know to prepare for this, but my former onc's office was clueless. If you're unable to get relief from your onc's office, try a dermatologist or your PCP. I hope you get some relief soon.

    I tried blotting my spots

    I tried blotting my spots with straight vinegar. It helped a lot, even though I smelled for awhile.
