When I had radiation treatment my oncologist told me to use 100% aloe vera gel on the radiation site. It did help. Also be sure to drink plenty of water while you are in treatment.

MY HUSBAND HAD RADIATION TOO. TWICE PER DAY DURING 3 WEEKS. AT THE BEGINNING DOCTOR TOLD US HE COULD EXPERIENCE SOME IRRITATION ON THE SKIN. BUT IT DIDN'T HAPPEN. BEFORE EACH RADIATION HE USED TO SAY SOME WORDS LIKE: "MY SKIN WILL NOT BURN". ALSO HE DIDN'T TAKE A SHOWER EVERY DAY. BECAUSE THE SKIN IS VERY SENSITIVE IN THOSE DAYS, SO TRY TO USE SENSITIVE SOAP AND JUST CLEAN YOUR SKIN WITH WATER. DRINK A LOT OF WATER, EAT HEALTHY.

WE ARE VERY LUKY HE DID NOT EXPERIENCE THAT. THE SIDE EFFECT HE HAD WAS PAIN IN HIS THROAT. FOR THIS PAIN, DOCTOR GAVE HIM A LIQUID MEDICINE TO RELIEVE THE PAIN. ALSO ALL HIS HAIR WAS GONE.

TELL YOU WIFE, SHE NEEDS TO BE POSITIVE. EVERY PERSON HAS DIFFERENT SIDE EFFECTS. BUT I CAN TELL YOU THAT RADIATION IS VERY ADVANCE TODAY. HOPEFULLY SHE WILL NOT EXPERIENCE ANY IRRITATION.

GOOD TO HEAR THAT!!!!! Whe she finishes maybe she will have a little pain on his throat because of the radiation. But a natural medication is honey!!!!!!!!. My husband was taking 1 tablespoon of honey daily. It will help her to heal inside.

Good luck!!!!!!
