Hello Arfa, Thank you for the question.
Symptoms of itching can occur due to various health conditions. To find out the cause of course more information is needed about your symptoms. Some causes of itching are:
Taceral is a drug with capecitabine, which is a class of chemotherapy drugs to treat breast cancer and colon and rectal cancer (colorectal cancer). This drug serves to prevent the growth of cancer cells that can be combined with other chemotherapy drugs or radiotherapy. Some common side effects of this drug are nausea, vomiting, decreased appetite, diarrhea, fever, fatigue, muscle and joint pain, thrush, jaundice , and skin that becomes sensitive (easily reddish and peel). Discontinuing use of this drug generally does not cause complaints of itching.
If this complaint is very disturbing, you should consult with your doctor further. Your doctor needs more information regarding your symptoms and has you examined. After the doctor's examination, the doctor will determine the next treatment. You can try cold compresses on the itchy area of the skin or using calamine lotion. Avoid scratching the itchy area of the skin. Please, you also maintain skin moisture if the skin looks dry by using a skin moisturizer and avoid exposure to cold air. Keep your house and bedroom clean.
Hopefully this information helps you.
