Vidaza rash?

I started Vidaza cycle 4 yesterday and awoke today with a fine red rash over my trunk, neck, and head. Has anyone else experienced this effect? It is slightly itchy but tolerable. I've had no other changes to account for this and have not had this effect in prior treatments.

My complete BMB report is not in yet but the preliminary results showed my blasts reduced from 17% to 7% and with little incidence of abnormal cells after three cycles! I am hoping the rash is nothing to worry about; with the Vidaza working so well, I'm nervous about anything that could be a contraindication.

Rash - Itch

I just finished round three of vidaza las Tuesday. I've had rashes since about the middle of round. Chest, head, back of neck, them last night on my right thigh. Many of them had extreme itching as a bonus effect. Just noticed that the thigh rash which had gone away with Benedryll is coming back again.

Congrats on your readings. It might make me itch less!
