She prescribed a stronger steroid cream - Clobetasol - and asked me to use it twice daily for two weeks. Then hopefully it will get knocked back enough to be maintained with Desoximetasone.
I’ll check back in in a month to see if things are better. And if not, Accutane might be the next step. She said she just prescribed that for a patient with an EGFR rash the other week, so hopefully she will have a sense of whether that works by the time I head back in.
If done all the above, the doxycycline works the best but found I had to start taking it the day before my first infusion. I had a steroid cream for my face, the name escapes me, and that seemed to help. The problem with the topical creams is eventually, your skin is so raw, it hurts too much to put on and I’m left with the antibiotic only.
