Does it take a long time for the burned skin (after radiation) to peel off? I ended radiation 3 weeks ago and even then the nurse and doctor were wondering why the old, burned skin wasn't coming off very much. I go back to the doctor next week and I'm sure she is going to ask about it again. She was saying that a long soak in the bath tub a 3-4 times a week or so and daily washing (with shower or bath) with a wash cloth and regular bath soap should be plenty. And that is what I do. 3/4 of the tanned skin has remained pretty much the same. I can't see trying to use a rough brush and trying to force the issue...it seems to me that is just inviting a chance for infection and pain...which I don't have now. What do you think?
