Two years ago due to a severe rash I switched from Gleevec to Tasigna. Well the rash is back with a vengence. For the past month I've been on steroid creams, steroid injection, antihistamine, creams and lotions. Some times it itches and some times it burns and hurts. I've been avoiding it but see prednisone in my future.

Looks like I have the mange.

I have cancer but it doesn't have me

I feel your pain - My Gleevec rash is starting to flare up again too.  For me, it is mostly contained on my chest and stomach so I can easily cover it up.  I think my seasonal allergies are causing the flare up this time but it is no less annoying.  Hang in there and try not to scratch too much!
