Erika reported that her hives started about two months after finishing chemotherapy for breast cancer, and asked if anyone else had the same experience. Yes!!!
I started noticing heat hives during my chemotherapy for breast cancer. My first round of chemo was in the winter, and I didn’t notice anything. In the spring, I started a new round of chemo (Taxol), and that is when I started to notice it.
I am not sure if it was specifically related to the Taxol, or just because I happened to be on the Taxol when the weather started warming up. I finished chemo three months ago, and the hives are even worse now.
I am looking forward to winter.
