Revlimid Itching

Revlimid Itching

My husband started revlimid this week for maintenance. He had stem cell transplant in January 2020 and has been doing well. He is having itching mostly on his scalp. Has anyone else had this and how long did it last? Thank you.

Lenora, The Revlimid itching and Rash are common. Claritin or Benadryl usually helps but talk with doctor before starting. Love, Marcia 🌻🌸🌼

Yes I really had it all over in the beginning of Revlimid treatment
I was given dex 10 mg. A few times a week
Now I am down to 2mg twice a week.

Benedril or Claratin should work, I took it as needed and itching went away in about 3-4 days but occassionally comes back as I am on Rev for maintenance but did not have a transplant.

When I first started taking Revlimid my scalp started to itch. It lasted a couple of weeks then went away.

Leanora, this is common when starting Revlimid. Claritin is supposed to help. Let the doctor know. πŸ’ž
