chemotherapy is causing massive acne break out
juours posted:
It's been 1 week since my 1st chemo treatment and everyday I have more and more acne like whiteheads on my torso (back included), neck and face. It seems to have started on my chest and is slowly rising up my body. I am allergic to benzoyl peroxide and salicylic acid. Is it not enough that all my hair will fall out, I'll be sick as all get out, in pain and chronically exhausted!? Help!!
