Survivor since 2012
I also broke out in red spots all over my torso, arms, and face due to Taxotere. They itched and sometimes hurt. I found Gold Bond lotion made them feel much better. I'd put it on damp skin as I was getting out of the shower. Also, my oncologist gave me some low-dose steroids to deal with it.
I had body aches for a week after my first three or so treatments, then felt much better before my next treatment. As I had more treatments, though, the pain lasted much longer and finally didn't end between treatments. Make sure you get good pain medication from your doctor, and don't be afraid to ask for something strong. You have to stay on top of it or you end up miserable all the time. I took Percocet, which also helped me take naps during the day. It eased the pain and made me sleepy.
A word of caution, and THIS WAS MY EXPERIENCE, ONLY. As my treatments went on my reaction to Taxotere got worse. Please listen to your body and speak up if any of the symptoms get worse or if you develop new ones.
Best of luck on your journey. Just remember that it's not going to last forever.
