There are unique products and therapy lotions formulated specifically to address the skin care issues you may have related to chemotherapy, radiation therapy and scalp issues related to wearing wigs. These products target dry/itchy skin, dark under eye circles, ashen skin tone, and radiation redness, burn and tenderness.
These companies take great care in formulating their products to reduce toxic ingredients that could have an adverse effect on your skin.
It is important that you use these products with your Oncology team’s permission. If your doctors are not familiar with these specially formulated products, do not use them until they can research and approve the product. Unfortunately, some medical professionals are not familiar with the skin care products formulated for cancer patients.
The skin care products formulated for chemo and radiation patients have a long history of helping with skin care issues and have carefully omitted toxic ingredients that everyday products may contain. I am familiar with the most commonly used skin care products that your patients should safely be able to use du
ring treatment and hair loss. You will be impressed that one company has a medical advisory board to assist with product formulation. I am happy to help with these resources.
