A rash can be a common side effect of Tarceva (erlotinib), a drug used to treat mineral powder-based foundation to work better. You may have to try a few different kinds before you find the right coverage you are looking for. If you have any questions or need a recommendation, don't hesitate to ask your nurse or doctor.

Switch to Perfume- and Dye-Free Laundry Detergent Rashes can also be sensitive to the dyes and perfumes of laundry detergent. Look for "clear formulas" if your skin appears to be sensitive to your normal detergent.
