I know when I started rads, this board was unbelievable in the tips and help that I got, so, I thought we might throw out a few tips for anyone just starting.
First and foremost though, do only what your own rads oncologist suggests. These tips are just what we did, per our own rads oncologist's approval.
For mine...Use your creams from day one if your rads oncologist prescribes some and continue to use them for awhile even after you are finished with rads as you are still "cooking". I used Aquaphor to keep my skin moist and I used the prescription Biafine for any burn that I might get. I went thru a lot of Aquaphor. I mainly used it at night and put on one of my hubby's old tshirts, as, it stains bad. So, I knew I could wash it in hot water or just throw it away when I was finished with rads.
