I started on Livial back in Feb08, following preventative surgery as I am BRCA2 cancer gene carrier and, like some others on here, had few options as to dealing with flushes, bone health etc. I am 40 years old.
I have developed quite a bit of facial hair, which is annoying, and my head hair seems to be falling out, so much is coming out all day long. But I have developed one body change that is really making my life a misery, and wondered if anyone else had experienced this - or if it isn’t linked to the Livial (as my doctor believes): Around April I remember my clothes started to feel a bit tight around the armpits, and so got little red marks when wearing the more fitting clothes. Slowly I have bought/worn bigger and bigger. It took a few months for me to realise that it was so much an increase in size, but sensitivity – each armpit now has two patches of sometimes sore, sometimes itchy skin. For the last 3 months I have been on a merry-go-round of visiting my doctor – differing diagnoses – impetigo, intertrigo, eczema, dermatitis – and received steroid creams, antifungal steroid creams, antibiotics; but nothing shifts it. I recently asked my GP if she thought it might be the HRT, but said it was doubtful. Has anyone else experience this?
