I had a radical hysterectomy last month (12/18) as a result of uterine cancer cells.
I am 70 years old, and obviously, post menopausal. However, since the surgery, I am healing well, but now have contact dermatitis on my palms that comes and goes, and usually manifests at night with intense itching and redness and swelling. Initially, my PCP thought it was a reaction to BP meds (just started after surgery) and I have also seen a dermatologist who has prescribed topical medication and finally prednisone. It did clear up, however, when I completed the meds, it has returned.
Is there a possibility that my hormones are contributing?
