Anyone else have the "itches" while taking radiation? I seem to itch on the side that I am having radiation treatments.

    I've had itches and occassional pain that goes as fast as it shows up. I'm going to be happy to be done with this.

    Me too
    How many more do you have? I have 22 :( And, then I start tamoxifen and I am half skeered of it now. It seems like we just can't enjoy our lives for trying to take all of this crap to protect us..doesn't it?

    The itches
    I have 7 more sessions to go and I have been itching alot, probably because I am very burned. Someone told me about emu oil so I just started using it yesterday. I slept all night but now after another session I am itching terribly. I'll keep on trying.

    I am itching too. My
    I am itching too. My radiation oncologist gave me hydrocortisone to put on under the biafine to stop the itching. It seems to work so far. Try it and good luck!
