My dermatologist told me to wash, using my hands instead of a cloth. I didn’t ask him why🤷🏽♀️. But I’ve noticed broken skin under my breast (where I had been using a washcloth)😳
I think it’s part MM, chemo, drugs and the fact our systems are not what they used to be.
Yes, our skin gets thinner as we get older, but steriods cause our skin to get thinner than it would have otherwise.
During treatment and maintenance my skin became paper thin. Now at 7 months off All MM Meds, my skin is back to normal. Scratches heal quickly and no unusual bruising.
Yes I think the treatment for MM causes our skin to get thinner. Gentle soap and other skin care steps need to be taken.
My skin seems to be thinner in some places but I don't have a clue why. Could be age I suppose.
