Excema

Hi all, 

I finished treatment for Primary Breast cancer 18 months ago and am taking Tamoxifen. I've had various side effects come and go but in the last 3 months I've developed excema around my eyes and nose. It's not severe but it is very noticeable. What's strange is that since puberty I've always had very oily skin and acne so this has me flummoxed! I've been to the doctor who has given me hydrocortisone cream. Could this be a side effect of Tamoxifen?

I'll be grateful for any advice!
