Hi OC Stacy,
I hope your mom's surgery went well. My husband just started Xeloda this morning so no rash yet, but the USC pharmacy sent a tube of Urea20 intensive hydrating cream made by Rugby along with the Xeloda. Might be worth a try. Our onc said to put it on and then put plastic bags over the hands and feet for about 30 minutes.
