Topic: Looks like measles! A result of chemo or radiation?
My trip to the oncologist resulted in a prescription for prednisone and directions to use the creams which I already had for itching. Two days later I began to break out (this is in addition to the dark red blotches which were on my body). By the third day I looked like I had the measles. A call to the doctor resulted in the recommendation that I continue with the medication and hold on until Monday. At that time I was to come back in to see the oncologist. Chemo was to again be canceled. It's been three days since I called the doctor. Some of the red blotches (ranging in size from a pencil eraser to the size of a quarter) have lightened. The rash, however, is just as bad. It really does look a lot like the measles.
Have any of you had rashes on your arms, torso, and legs like that?
Thanks for any responses,
