    Burning from Radiation

    I am starting to have some burning from the radiation on my back. I remember reading some recommendations on this site about some good creams to use for that. Can anyone repost what they are please?

      A nurse recommended simple,inexpensive aloe vera gel that is available in any pharmacy. I had good luck with that. I used it regularly during radiation, and have no radiation scarring on my chest.

      Aloe vera gel during treatment; Eucerin Aquafor after. Worked beautifully.
