allergy and skin issues post-chemo?
I finished active chemo in Oct 2018 - did a year and a half total of Taxol, Red Devil, Cisplatin and Xeloda.
I'm having so many allergy issues and skin problems and I wonder if anyone else has had these problems after chemo. I feel permanently altered. Right now, I have swelling under my eyes and extremely stinging, burning skin. I don't know what is causing it as I haven't changed products or anything, and this happens periodically. I also have a permanently stuffed up nose and my sinuses always feel swollen, but I had allergy testing and everything was negative.
In addition, I get tons of little red bumps on my legs all the time that look like a rash. Does chemo just make us permanently sensitive to certain ingredients or environmental things?
I'm so frustrated. Not only did I go through the strain of cancer, but now I look like I'm constantly sick and tired, and my eyes look hideously swollen. Nothing works, even the most mild products causing serious stinging and burning. I've tried aloe, coconut oil, cucumber slices - all still cause irritation.
