Rash

Concerning the rash I mentioned in the last post, my doctor felt that it wasn't GvHD based on the burning sensation. Since she wasn't able to see it, she had to base the tentative diagnosis on my symptoms, which I don't think I did a very good job of describing. She was leaning more toward a fungal infection and prescribed an ointment accordingly.

The rash disappeared the day I heard from the team and I forgot to apply the ointment. Bad patient. I still tend to believe it was more related to GvHD than not, since I've been having skin flares since the prograf was reduced.

I have another appointment with my local oncologist this month to have a chemistry panel pulled. Aside from this, there's not much else going on.
