Cetuximab (Erbitux) skin dryness treatment

Postby pennycsf » Wed Feb 05, 2014 9:27 pm

When on a Cetuximab (trade name Erbitux) regime, severe skin dryness is a known side effect.

One of our members who has been on this for some time now tells me that the only cream to satisfactorily tackle the dryness for her is "Crème Intensive à la Ficoide à Cristaux" by Dr Hauschka Med. (English name "Intensive Ice Plant Cream".) She has only been able to find this (in dept 66) in the Réso Bio shops.

It is also available "on-line" through various bio outlets - search on "Dr Hauschka Med Crème Intensive à la Ficoide à Cristaux" (otherwise lots of anglophone sites come up) - and take your pick! :)
