Am halfway through radiation and have developed a "breakout" on my skin. Little itchy bumps. Radiation Oncologist suggested that I apply a cortisone cream. It helped for a few days but it's back to itching again and spreading. At my treatment on Friday, they gave me an ointment called Aquaphor...a petrolatum based cream that's supposed to speed healing, etc. It made it all worse!!! I showered it all off within three hours. Needless to say, I won't be trying that again! I applied the cortisone
Hope everyone is doing o:k: and hanging in!
Love, light and laughter,
