Well...tonight the itchy skin kicked in. I've been just putting up with it because it was minor; but, tonight I had to use the halobetasol propionate cream prescribed by Dr Forkin a few weeks when I had sores on my fingertips. I'm not sure what that chemical is; but, I hope it relieves the itching.

Most of the rash is on my upper chest. is also on my neck and head behind my ears. This was one of the potential side effects of the Alimta. And...of course...I get any skin-related side effect. Hopefully, the cream will help and I can get back to sleep.

I got Dr Birdas' clearance to resume getting massage. So, I'll start next week.

Take care and be well. - JimA
