Gote psoriasis after taking tamoxifen
From this study (2 weeks ago):
I am on the drug. It has not been suggested that I should discontinue. I noticed changes to my toenails and fingernails after my course of Chemo had finished. finger nails fell off. Grew back normally. Toenails continued to look slightly thick at cut edge. They also started to curl. Podiatrist advised me how to cut them and use file. I was too vigorous with the file and took off skin. that is when the tinea started. My cholesterol is below 2 which is what the cardiologist wanted as I had a mini stroke.
