I noticed mine doing the same thing. Kinda like I've been sun burned. I am 4 months out.

Best,
Steve

My husband is just two weeks post treatment, but we have a friend who shared with us that six months after his treatment ended he had a recurrence of side effects. His doctor called it 'late reaction' and said the radiation is still having an effect on his body and that it is within normal reactions. It did go away and he healed just fine and is doing well.
