Stage 2B Paciente
So sorry to hear that. I finished my rads end December, and because I was so afraid of blisters, this is what I did:
Slathered my boob (not tiny ones either) with 100% Aloe (cannot contain alcohol), and literally aired my boob (I was alone at the house and would watch TV and cover my upper body with a very loose blanket)
DO NOT WEAR A BRA - trust me on this one - I did not for 8 weeks and it was the best thing I could do!!! The bra does not let the "heat" from rads escape and your chest needs air circulation
Wore 2XXL big t-shirts, so air can circulate
Once you have developed blisters, use or ask your oncologist for:
SSD cream; 1% Silver sulfadiazine cream (my cost was $56.00) but it will HEAL those blisters very very quickly, silver is a natural antibiotic and will help.
Other ladies said AQUAPHOR, I never used that, I only used 100% Aloe (I used 1 tub a day, that is how much I slathered on, let it dry, put on some more) Old t-shirts, no harm done.
The silver cream is not too messy either and really helps and disinfects.
Take an old sock, fill it with STARCH, roll and tape it up (like a sausage) and gently put it under your breast - the starch does not do any harm, but soaks up the body sweat - and helps to keep this sensitive area dry. Also lay on your couch (if you can) with arm up above your head (good against lymphedema, and airs that area)
Sorry if my answer is long winded, but my skin looks fabulous, because I went overboard on "pampering" it.
BTW if you use the silver cream, and continue your radiation, your skin will discolor, I had one white boob and one black book, and they lived in harmony (ebony and ivory, sorry I can't resist)..... the dark skin faded quickly after radiation, so don't panic. Don't hesitate to ask more questions. Best of luck and gentle hugs :) Radiation Girl
Drink that water!!!
