    The redness will subside over time. It may never completely go away though. It just depends how badly your skin was burned. My skin was pretty burnt

    Give it a couple of days and you'll be just fine. Cause my mom had to do a round of radiation.

    Ihave had two rounds of radiation IT depends on the amount of radiation you receive. The first time it was several weeks after the last treatment. The second time it wasabout a mont. There is a cream you can get via Rx that gives some relief.

    Mine lasted a few weeks. But I notice that part gets more tan than the other side when I get tan in the summer.
