I am on day +61. For a week or so I have had a very itchy face, and from yesterday, an itchy back, with a very obvious visible rash. At my clinic appointment yesterday the doctor confirmed that it is most likely GVHD. During the the evening and this morning the itching area expanded to cover my whole back and it became more severe. I have been using prescribed Betnovate cream as advised but the relief is very temporary.
I am concerned at how quickly it has got worse and would appreciate any thoughts or advice.
Interestingly, I have been on injections to boost my WBC count, and yesterday my neutrophils were at more than 10. Since GVHD results from the donor cells attacking the host, I was wondering if this sudden worsening is due to this high count.
