I went for outpatient chemo a few weeks ago and had a severe reaction to Taxol which landed me in the Emergency Department. So, after stabilizing and having a good labs I had my *real* first chemo treatment last week and am now 5 days out. I got some weird breakout on my face 2 days ear the chin area...I guess it's chemo acne? My new regimen includes Taxetere and Carboplatin. Does anyone have tips on what they've used? Does it come and go? Usually on the face always?

Update, the acne cleared up about 10 days after treatment. I also used an OTC acne cream and that helped I think. Let's see what happens with treatment cycle 2 (hopefully next week).
