Going in to see the doc and get PCR results next week. I am wondering if any of you have had this issue and if I should bring it up to my onc, or if it's unrelated to Sprycel and just some skin thing that needs to be checked by a dermatologist. My oncologist is always skeptical about things being related to TKIs or CML. Thus, my interest in knowing if any of you have noticed something similar.
I've had something weird going on with my ear. Started last March. The inside of my ear is scabby and horrifically itchy. It will almost heal up and then scab up again. It's a problem because during motorcycle season I wear custom-fit ear plugs. . .I thought that maybe that was what had caused the initial irritation. . .but haven't been biking for months now and the rash-thing has been on and off for about 11 months now. It is really itchy and really painful. No way I'll be able to put in the ear plugs. . so the damned thing MUST be cleared up in about a month! I also have another rashy thing (no jokes allowed here, please), on my butt cheek, right where the butt becomes the leg. It is itchy and a hard lump under the skin. It is so itchy I actually scratched it bloody (no. . .not in public).
So. . .is this a Sprycel rash?? OR maybe I'm allergic to work and should fill out a workman's comp form and hope I can quit my job??!!
Any rashy, scabby people out there. . .let me know!
