    I've read over all the posts and have a few things in mind to try. I've completed 8 cycles of chemo. 4 weeks after when I started growing hair back, I developed this crazy full body itch. It's weird cause it mainly seems to be more severe at night. Anyway I'm gonna try some of the suggestions. Thank you all again. God Bless

    Hi DrcJr77 , not sure if my experience it helps or not, but will share anyway.

    When my wife was doing Radio ( so that would have to be around 4/5 weeks after finishing 6x R-CHOP ) she had a massive itching ( skin looked red as it was allergic to something ) in the full body with swollen hands/ankles etc....
    Of course we were in panic, but we did some steroid and kept the radio plan.

    Doctors suspected it was viral and after one/two weeks it dissapear never to return.

    Hope you are better.
