Zytiga use and upper body rash.

I have been on Zytiga for two yrs now and PSA is negligible. Suddenly developed rash on arms chest. Cortisone cream is doing the trick. Has anyone else experienced this reaction?

Hi I've been on Arbiraterone (Zytiga in UK) for 5 years and haven't had that.

Lost all body hair, can't tolerate the sun and skin feels soft, almost feminine and bruises easy. Also lost a lot of muscle strength.

All in all though things are fine.

Thanx Joe. The loss of muscle strength is huge. I can’t even open some jars any more.

Best of luck.
