Skin peeling...

Hi Girls

Just wondered if anyone had had this strange symptom? The skin around my nails had started to peel away…and it does seem to be easily cut. Just for instance, if I am opening mail at work, quite often I find that paper slices into my skin and Im always covered in blood!! They feel so sore at the moment. Would appreciate any comments.

Hi Debbie

Are you on any treatment? I’m on a chemo at the moment which does exactly that, I’ve also lost my cuticles.

Am not sure whether it’s normal for hormone therapy - I’ve been on tamoxifen, Arimidex and Exemestane and must admit that I didn’t experience this.

Are you still in contact with your breast care nurse? If so, it might be an idea to have a word with her.
