I was diagnosed with CML about 4 months ago. I tried Gleevac but found it caused too much water retention (my eyes became so puffy and swollen, I could not see). I was then put on Tasigna which had its own particular side effects for me. I have allergies and developed a rash with itching on my head, face, neck, arms and torso. I have been able to control the itching on my body but not my scalp. Has anyone else experienced this situation and what did you do (or take) to alleviate the scalp itching (which is rather intolerable)? I also am coping with very dry/reddened skin on my face (for which I use a liberal amount of cream). KariSlye
