Hi ladies, My mother is on treatment 24 of 28, then she'll be getting 3 to 5 Boosts, so far, her skin has been good,no redness, no peeling, no blisters, perhaps those that have been through this could tell if the boosts are worse? Than normal rads? here in South Africa, the protocol, seems a bit different, my mom hasn't been allowed to wet that breast @ all, just a gentle wipe, and then apply Maizena (corn starch) powder to the breast, and for her underarms, she's been allowed no deodorants, no creams or anything! No bra allowed, and Loose clothing! I must say for those that are going to start this, my mom has breased through rads so far, she was so scared, and didn't want to do radiation, Because 6 months of Chemo was really really tough! God Bless you all!
