  • From this study (13 hours ago):

  • I've been on Herceptin 10 months. About 2 months ago, I started having sudden bouts of intense itchy skin that I cannot tolerate. It affects different places on my body; arms, chest, neck, back, legs, just about anywhere, and usually more than one place at same time. I generally wipe with a cool washcloth, and lotion up. That helps reduce the intensity of itching, but it's not complete relief.

    Now, for 2 days, I've had a painful rash on my ribs, below the left breast. It is NOT in a fold where an infection could occur. If it matters, the rash is on the same side as the breast cancer.

    I called the cancer center, where a nurse said it was likely shingles. I have been a medical professional in the past, and this does not look like shingles. There is no weeping, no vesicles, it is completely smooth. I take benadryl 50mg 3x daily, and Acyclovir 400mg x2 daily (prophylactically). I'd be surprised if it turns out to be shingles.

    Nothing has explained the itching bouts that I have everywhere else. I've read that Herceptin can cause itching in a small percentage of people. The nurse said that this only occurs as a possible reaction at the beginning of treatment, which is not my case. What do think about the itching? What about the rash?
