BCG treatment and itching

7 months 4 weeks ago #56035 by Vh9246
We spoke to my husbands dr before the treatment. He said BCG releases a lot of histamines etc and couldn't say for sure that the BCG is what caused him to be itchy. He also said this is itchy skin weather .we live in the north east. My husband always had dry skin. So let's see what this week brings. He made us feel so good saying you know things do tend to go away with this treatment. From his mouth to Gods ears.

Yes we will speak to the dr before. He has always had itchy skin on his back etc and it is relieved with a lotion Cerave. I just want to make sure this isn't an allergic reaction. Thank you for your response and I will write back when I get an answer. I love this forum. We never heard of BCG ..never thought radiation would have caused anterial bladder cancer .

Can you call your husband's doctor's office and ask them these questions or talk with them prior to the BCG today? Please let us know what the doctor says.
Best wishes,
