I've had hand foot syndrome since cycle 2. I've been well moisturized with Udderly Smooth. What's weird is the itching started AFTER my last dose and despite the cream. Sometimes the cream seems to make it worse, and I've considered the possibility of a developing allergy to the cream. My HFS symptoms of redness, skin thickening and peeling have all gotten better. I think it is unusual to develop a different symptom related to HFS only at the end, unless it's a cumulative effect I am only experiencing after 8 cycles.
Thanks for the feedback.
