Thank you everyone, I told my doctor I was using coconut oil and he agreed it was very good to use. I've also gotten the Aloe plant leaf and making a drink from that and using the gel.All of this my doctor say is very good and safe to continue using
I too used Aquaphor. My nurse gave me samples to start using prior to treatments. It worked perfectly & I purchased a small jar from Walmart for less than $5.00. I used it morning noon & night to keep my skin moist. What ever you use wash it off prior to treatment or your skin will burn quicker.
I used aquaphor immediately after my treatments. Make sure the area is washed clean and dried before your treatments. I actually continued using aquaphor after all my treatments because the skin needed moisture
I used Aquaphor immediately after each treatment and at night before I went to bed. I bought a tube that I kept in my purse, and I had a jar that I kept at home. This was what was recommended by the radiation team.
I forgot to mention I had 35 treatments which were a walk in the park. I had no side effects but I did have a really dark sunburn that went away when treatments ended. Each one was 15min 5 days a week & the last 5 were called boost shots. They were directed @ the specific location where cancer was originally found. Just remember most important wash off any creams or lotions prior to treatments. You got this 🙏🏾
I have my first treatment tomorrow. The clinic gave me Vitamin E oil to use. Thanks for your tip on coconut oil I will also try that. My problem is I'm having treatment in the afternoon (3pm) so I'm wondering if I should put lotion on just after the treatment and then at night and not in the morning?
