dear Inkblot, I had the same reaction and believe it or not the only thing that relieved the itch was cornstarch. Use it like a talc, its very soothing. Good Luck, Janet

Thanks Janet! Will give the cornstarch a try. Have been using Aloe Vera (straight from the natural plant) and it feels soooo
great on my skin. Seems to help a lot and leaves no sticky or heavy residue. Have only 8 treatments remaining...all on the electron beam unit. I so look forward to having the radiation behind me!

Hope everyone else is doing o:k: and hanging
in...especially on the curves.

love, light and laughter,
