Hi,
Skin rashes are very common among breast cancer patients on chemotherapy. A good percentage of my patients develop skin problems including reddening, darkening, peeling, rash, burning sensation, nail changes, mucus membrane changes etc.
Please consult with your oncologist, who may prescribe medication like anti-histaminics or even a short course of low dose steriods. (In fact you may already be on steroids for a few doses after Taxotere.)
All the best and God Bless!
