    NO
    Please don't make anything at home to use on a rads burn. Please ask your radiation oncologist for a cream or something to use. There are so many out there that can help you. A radiation burn is something to take very serious and to let your rads oncologist help you with.

    Mine gave me Biafine and Aquaphor and I just finished rads on Monday. I only got a little pink, no burns.

    Just ask your doctor for something pleaseeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!

    Ask your rads oncologist
    Ritzy is right. Do not just make up something at home for a rad burn. That is what your rads oncologist is for. He will either give you some creams or give you a prescription to get something. You have to be very careful with your skin during rads. I was also told to use Dove soap. Just talk to your radiation oncologist and ask them what to use on your skin.

    Your radiation oncologist
    Your radiation oncologist will give you creams to help with any rad burn that you might get. NEVER make something at home and use it without letting him know. Rad burns are not just like a sunburn, so be careful. Good luck
