      I would for sure ask your doctor. I had this during treatment and they first gave me a cream to apply (which did not do much) and then I needed antibiotics (orally) to clear it up. The antibiotics did the trick. Good luck :)

      Saw oncologist this morning. He said it was folliculitis aggravated by the staph in our well water. Now taking an antibiotic, using Benadryl cream and going to wash with bottled water until we get reverse osmosis put in.

      My oncologist has a rash person on staff... She saved me many times. I vote for have your oncologist prescribe or get a referral from him./her.
