Topic: Question about hand and foot syndrome from Xeloda?
Lauren woke up this morning and said her feet were starting to burn and they are kind of red. She said it is hard to walk on them. She has always had tough skin on the bottom from going barefoot a lot. I think it is the start of hand and foot syndrome from being on Xeloda. She didn't get this with 5-FU. Why would she get it with Xeloda? Anyway, my question is: What have you found to be the best cream or lotion?
Also, any tips you might have will be greatly appreciated. Gio put baby lotion on her feet tonight and she wrapped them in Saran Wrap and put short little socks on. Thanks.
My comments, suggestions, and opinions are based on my experience as a caretaker for my daughter, Lauren and from reading anything I can get my hands on about Cholangiocarcinoma. Please consult a physician for professional guidance.
