I'm making this post for anyone who is going through radiation therapy and experiencing skin changes such as reddness, dryness, itching and discoloration. I have a surgical scar where they are doing radiation and it is so dry that it is cracking and it HURTS. I have found Aquaphor (cream) helpful. Right now I'm experiencing immense itching to the point that I cannot sleep. Hopefully people who are struggling with this problem or have been through this and have any helpful tips will visit and post.
