    Radiation treatments

    Anyone suggest something I can put on skin to help heal radiation burn on my leg. The burn is still getting worse two weeks after finishing treatments

      Call your radiation treatment center and ask to speak to the nurse. They might even want you to come in so that they can look at how bad it is before recommending something. Best wishes.

      My center gave me all the creams I needed. When things got a little pink, I was given a stronger cream.
      I would call the office. They may give you some cream or give you a prescription for something.

      Hello, I am an oncology nurse and I always recommend Ahava Water lotion which is available on Amazon and in some Ulta 3 shops. Best of luck to you.

      My radiation oncologist gave me all kinds of stuff to use. Can’t remember which ones but they were all prescriptions. Mine bled which made it hard to keep any cream on it but it did help some.
