      I had radiation on my left breast. Immediately after radiation i felt a similar sensation but it went away as the day passed. I thought it was the precursor to a radiation burn, which I had but it was more like a slight sunburn with a little peeling.

      Right around the third week of my 33 treatments on my left side is when I began to get skin "effects" - started as a sunburn (could be the tingling), then a worse burn, then peeled, then new skin. Ask for creams or pads that you can use.

      I also had the tingling but I believe it was a precursor to the burning that comes. Usually the fourth week is when it starts burning. I didn't get it real bad but it hurt to have anything touch me on the left side. Never lost any skin just like a sun burn. Skin turned a little brown also. After the treatments were over it went away though. Took about 2 months before no more burning feeling.
