Ask anyone who's been through radiation treatments, and they'll tell you - one of the most difficult things to deal with are the burns. Radiation kills cancer cells, but on its way into the body to attack the tumor, it can also damage skin cells. Depending on the intensity or strength of the beam and how many sessions you have, the burns may range from minor redness and swelling, like a sunburn, to more sever blistering, peeling and flaking.
When treating these types of burns, the standard, over-the-counter petroleum-based products just won't cut it! Petroleum covers the skin, but does noting to nourish or heal it, and can actually contribute to more dryness over the long term. Chemical preservatives and fragrances can also contribute to the irritation and pain.
Instead, what you need when treating radiation burns is:
A. Something to cool it down
B. Something to heal it
C. Something to deeply moisturize
