I've had CLL for almost 9 years. WBC count had been mostly stable around 20K. After my 5th IVIG infusion (Feb 1, 2017), I developed a skin rash that started on my torso and has gone all over my body. It's been 2 months and hardly abated! Dermatologists put me on Prednisone for 3 weeks, and I've been using two different kinds of steroid creams. Some slight relief but rash is still very present.
Don't know if CLL is hindering healing. Has anybody else experienced a rash?
My husband has had CLL for 14 years. He was on imbruvica in February 2016 til end of May and off a month in between because he couldn't tolerate side effects. Early in June he had an all over rash that itched. He started 6 months chemo. He still has rash all over. Not as bad but it didn't go away. The only relief he got was an over counter spray which would stop itching for awhile and hot showers
What was the spray? I'm afraid that hot showers would make the skin hot and redder, so mine are comfortably warm.
It is in a spray can. RITE Aid brand blue & white anti Itch spray. I can't figure out how to copy paste on here or would send a photo Bill
Thanks. I'll look for it.
It is a cold spray, spray in hand then rub on
