Skin Rash with Tamoxifen
I have been taking Tamoxifen since Jan 10.  Around 1 1/2 weeks I started having severe vaginal itching.  Then a slight rash started.  As of  Jan. 31 I broke out rashes all over my body.  The crotch area, behind knees, front of elbows, back, neck, head, wrists.  Can you break out in a rash like this a week and 1/2 after starting this Medication?

Hi.  Unfortunately, vaginal dryness and irritation, as well as generalized rashes, are known side effects of Tamoxifen and are not uncommon.  If the symptoms are mild, you can try taking some allergy medications like fexofenadine (Telfast) to relieve the itching.  If the symptoms are severe, you need to consult with your doctor so he can give you an alternative hormonal treatment.
