My mother will start Xeloda next week. Was wondering what worked with for you guys for the hand foot syndrome side effect from the chemo?
So far, I have bought Udderly Smooth hand cream and and regular cream. I have read about the "Working hands" working well too. Also, I also was told that Aquaphor does well for the radiation burns. Does the Aquaphor work well for the hands and feet too?
Any help would greatly be appreciated! Thank you in advanced!

It looks like for me dose reduction will be 20% starting with treatment #6 of 5-FU. I've been using castor oil with gloves at night, compression gloves to work and Bentonite clay to help draw out toxins and cool things down.
