Burnt scar

Hey everyone,

I have completed 23/30 rads. My scar from my sentinel node dissection has become very sore! I just noticed this morning that it had a small blister that popped. I’m super nervous it will get infected and I’ll get lymphedema. Anyone else experience this? I’m using pure aloe vera (from the plant) on it A LOT!

I burnt fairly badly with RT but not really until right at the end. My GP prescribed flamazine cream which is a specialist burn cream and it really helped.


Speak to you RT team on Monday - they should have either a tissue viability nurse or someone to take a look and give you something to help.
