In brief: It will go away

All the changes in your skin and hair will go away in a short time after your last dose of Taxol (paclitaxel).
Most patients are fully recovered in 3 to 6 months. So do not worry about the swelling...there is no treatment for it but your body are repair and normalize it slowly but surely.
