  • Blister Pictures (BleoMycin?)

    Not to try to scare anyone, But Wanted to shared my nightmare with BleoMycin. Now I know why Sloan stays clear of this. I start my second treatment of EP next week(Yes Dr. Finally decided to stop the Bleo after second dose). Dont ask my why he didn't after 1st, as I was starting to have a Severe reaction to it. I am so worried, I cant seem to shake this fever. Tylenol is helping to bring it to normal, But if I dont take it it is between 99.8-100.8. Dr. has put me on anti-biotics. (1 week - Augmentin 875 mg, and 3-day Levaquin 500mg). Anyone that may have had simular expierences to this that may be able to give some advise would be so helpful. My Oncologist does not seem too concerned, but the Nurses are. I feel like an expierement gone bad, and look like one to.

    (i) that's gross ; (ii) that's certainly not shingles.

    Cursory search found one case report in the literature of bleomycin-induced acute generalised exanthematous pustulosis. AGEP is a relatively newly recognized condition and diagnosis is certainly much more involved than just comparing pictures.

    On the plus (pus) side, you might become a medical case in the literature.

    Best wishes for a speedy recovery.
