Itchy back and arms

Dear @tomcojo
So sorry to hear that you are now off treatment and experiencing uncomfortable symptoms. May I ask whether your treatment team have referred you to dermatology at all? Is there a visible rash on your back? If the symptoms are persisting I would ask your treatment team to help, perhaps considering different anti-histamines?
Practical things:

  • keep cool, as heat, particularly in bed, can exacerbate symptoms.
  • tepid baths or gentle tepid showers.
  • hold something cool on your skin, like a damp towel
  • have cool or lukewarm baths or showers
  • use an unperfumed moisturiser
  • wear loose cotton clothing
  • use a laundry liquid or powder that’s for sensitive skin
    I do hope this is helpful and if you do need to get in touch, please do Blood cancer information and support by phone and email | Blood Cancer UK
