Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (2 years ago):

  • Have had hives and itching, stinging, rash over neck, shoulders, back, chest, and forearms for one week. Stopped taking the Lomotil after 2-3 days of rash when I realised what was causing it. The hives and rash started on the last day of radiation therapy and got progressively worse the next two days while driving home from the treatment center. The rash is only on unradiated areas so I know it isn't due to the 5 weeks of radiation. One week later, I still have the rash but it less severe. I also had a mild sore throat at the beginning with just pink patches on the pharynx and tonsillar posts. I am taking allegra or benydryl and using calydryl ointment and sarna lotion to combat the itch. It didn't seem severe enough to see the doctor but I may call in tomorrow if it isn't better.
