This Is A Fantastic Resource For Women Facing Radiation Therapy!

When establishing her treatment plan, Christina was concerned what radiation therapy would do to her skin. While radiation treatments in and of themselves don’t hurt, they can wreak havoc on the healthy skin cells near your treatment sites. This can make you feel fatigued, and also make the surrounding skin look and feel dry, itchy, raw, or blistered.

In the following video, Christina talks you through the products she used to combat these symptoms before her first radiation treatment even started — from what she used in the shower to what she applied immediately after the treatments. Using these methods, her skin didn’t get “raw or pink or weepy” for the first six weeks. After that she did experience some rawness, but the effects were minimal and manageable (and she’ll share tips about what she did to expedite that healing process as well).

Take a look! These methods worked for Christina, but what products have worked (or failed) for you?
