I have been on Tasigna for a bit over a month, currently on 600 mg. I have had short-term headaches which have resolved, but a facial rash persists and most concerning is a burning sensation in my face along with the rash that seems to be dose-related. My skin is not dry or itchy, just feels like it is on fire, only affecting the face. I have looked through past postings and may have missed something in regard to this.
Has anyone experienced this flushing/burning sensation on Tasigna, and if so, how long did it last, or if it persists. how is it treated and what causes it ? I had no skin problems or burning on Gleevec, but other issues made it difficult. Any input would be appreciated...thanks !
