I will be starting Erbitux treatments next week. Is there anything I can do this week to prepare for or lessen the side effects, besides taking an antibiotic?

For example, would a facial help or hurt?

Also, is it recommended to get flu, pneumonia, and/or shingles shots before chemo and radiation?

thank you.
