Pat, I'm still suffering with hives. I am taking atarax bid which is helping with the
itching. I see onc. on Wed and I have been off Gleevec for two weeks. He
will slowly increase the dosage back to 300mg. My last PCR was .004 so I am
ok I guess.
My suggestion to you is to take a Benadryl and if it abates the itching, you know
it is an allergic reaction. I know we started these drugs around the same time
6 years ago and now this! Every morning I wake up and think of Dorothy Parker
"What fresh hell is this?"
The dermatogist has been useless and more useless each time I enter her office.
I am going to see my Allergist on Thurs. I haven't seen him in years, but he is
a good diagnostician and maybe he can figure this out.
Me....Me.. Sorry, I hope you will try an antihistamine and the best lotion is
called Sarna. It relieves better than even the Rx creams. It is otc.
I hope we both find some resolution to our skin issues.
