The objectives of this study are to evaluate the effectiveness of an antiperspirant in preventing or attenuating the severity of palmer-plantar erythrodysesthesia associated with the Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-approved doses of capecitabine. The hypothesis is that cytotoxic compounds in sweat will be prevented from being deposited in the skin and causing chronic toxicity.
