Taxol - itchy rash from chemo?

I did 4 rounds of A/C, and on my 8th out of 12 Taxol treatments. I have developed the most awful itchy skin in the last month. I have a rash on both sides of my arms, a little on my stomach and my elbows are all bumpy, itchy and red! I have tried neosporin, cortizone cream, and eucerin lotion. Nothing really works. Could this be from the Taxol?

Hi,
Taxol (paclitaxel) is known to have many side effects, including allergic reactions. These may manifest in many different ways - including transfusion reactions and skin rashes.
Please discuss with your oncologist.
All the best, and God Bless!
