Some studies suggest that wearing frozen gloves and socks for 90 minutes during Taxol chemotherapy can help control neuropathy symptoms.
For people diagnosed with breast cancer, the most common cause of peripheral neuropathy is chemotherapy, especially platinum and taxane chemotherapy medicines. Chemotherapy travels throughout the body and in some cases can cause damage to nerves in fingers and toes. Taxane chemotherapy medicines include Taxol (chemical name: paclitaxel), Taxotere (chemical name: docetaxel), and Abraxane (chemical name: nab-paclitaxel). Platinum chemotherapy medicines include carboplatin.
