SORRY (:-( - NO: Unfortunately no. "tranfer factor" is one of the current fads, just see who is selling these products, literally your neighbors or friends.

For a 59 year old stomach cancer patient, should leg pain be taken as a chemotherapy's side effect? Patient is on eloxatin (oxaliplatin) and capecitabina... Thanks.
Maybe related: You are having leg pain and wonder if it is related to chemotherapy drugs. It is important to relay your leg pain to your doctor. This could be related to electrolyte imbalance, blood clot, among other things. Your doctor will want to know what makes the pain get better and when you notice it, if it resolves on its own.

Should one on chemo (xeloda+eloxatin+zometa) take multivitamins, calcium, antioxidants, resveratrol, digestive enzymes, fish oils, curcumin etc?

70 years male, stomach cancer metastasized to liver&bone, on (xeloda+eloxatin+zometa), can or should he take antioxidants during chemo?
No: There is no benefit I am aware of with antioxidants helping chemotherapy. There are theoretical reasons why antioxidants can impair chemotherapies ability to kill cancer cells. I would not take additional unproven supplements without a md approval or without being on a clinical trial to study it. Anti-oxidants have harmed people in randomized studies. The won't harm, might help mantra is out. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Various Options: Daily steroid or antihistamines nasal sprays (fluticasone, azelastine) are helpful.

No cure yet, but...: Allergy shots (allergen immunotherapy) is currently the only treatment that is disease modifiying, meaning it can change how the body responds to exposure to allergens. It is "natural" and long lasting effects carry on after shots are stopped. It works for most, but not all people. Closest thing to a cure so far.....

OTC Allergy: Not fair. Truly, it is trial-and-error. What works best for you might not work best for someone else. Loratadine is the weakest binding non-sedating antihistamine; Cetirizine is the strongest binding non-sedating antihistamine. Benadryl (diphenhydramine) works better than both but it makes people sleepy. ...Read more
