Here is a link to our publication on Radiotherapy that Alice45 mentioned.
Have you read the BCC booklet on radiotherapy? Lots of information there. You can find it on this site, and I'm sure someone in the know will post a link...
Simple also do a nice hair shampoo and conditioner which I am using on my v.v.short hair... As their bodywash is permitted, the shampoo should be OK too. Best wishes, A
the debate as to what you can use during rads is made all the more difficult when every unit gives you different info. I had mine in may at Edinburgh. I had been applying E45 as recommended on here but my unit says no cream only simple soap and deodorant.
I have to say I tried to go without but started using E45 again in my first week. The days I didn't my skin felt tight. I took a bottle with me and put it on before getting dressed. I told the nurse and she was impressed how well my skin was doing. I usually forgot under my arm and after treatment my scar got crusty. I think it was because I didn't put the cream there.
whatever you decide they keep a close eye on you during treatment and treat any problems straight away.
once you get started the time passes quickly.
Wishing you all good luck with your treatments.
