hands and feet
My hands and feet are in a terrible state... What can I do about it?
Chemotherapy and targeted treatments can lead to significant side effects on the hands and feet: redness (which can be intense), thickening of the skin and pain around contact zones, chapping, cracking and dryness, etc. (This is sometimes referred to as hand-foot syndrome). The resulting discomfort and pain can be extremely disabling, and in some cases can even force patients to stop the treatments producing the side effects.
