Caring for your skin, nails, and hair during treatment
EGFR (Epidermal Growth Factor Receptor) is a receptor found on both tumor and normal cells. Because ERBITUX is an EGFR inhibitor, it affects not only tumor cells, but it can also cause changes in the normal cells on your skin, nails, and hair follicles. There are many ways to take care of your skin, nails, and hair before and during ERBITUX treatment. Be sure to talk with your doctor or nurse before starting any self-care treatment.
