Looking for a way to reduce the tenderness if the hands & feet.
15 Nov 2013
I have been on Xeloda for about 5 months, my main reaction is sore, red, swollen feet. Hands are not affected at this point only the soles of my feet. I cover my soles with udderly smooth cream twice a day and then use udder balm before bed. You will need to cover them with socks or ped socks to prevent the cream/balm over your sheets or sliding in your sandals/shoes. I got both of this items at CVS Pharmacy.
The other thing I do, if it gets really sore, is to elevate them or soak them in cool water.
Hope this helps!
