Tue, Feb 19 11:23pm · Myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) and skin itching in Blood Cancers & Disorders

I get Procrit shots for my myelodysplastic syndrome which help a lot, BUT I'm also having terrible itching on very dry skin areas which is very difficult to live with. My doc has given me prednisone but I had a bad reaction to it. Oh how I wish I could take something that would relieve it some.

I have been doing very well with Procrit shots every 4-5 months, in a series of 4 or 5 weekly injections. Then when my red count goes down I start the injections again. I was once told by a good dermatologist that my all-over itchy skin is part of my myelodysplastic syndrome. It's very disturbing trying to control the itching. Anyone out there have this condition?? @
