Re: tamoxifen

Hello taffhelen

welcome to the site! I itch all over, not just my scalp, since taking tamoxifen, infact I'm seeing the dermatlogy clinic to try and determin if it's allergy or hormone related (to the tamox). My consultant said that some people do get dry skin and itches as a result in the drop in oestrogen...

However can't suggest anything to help apart from advising that you tell your consultant/BCN/oncologist and just letting you know you're not alone. I'm sure some of the other lovely people on this site will contact you soon.

Take care
