Re: Shampoo and Rads

Rads finished last Wednesday, all seems good apart from a little redness. Now the long 3 month wait to see the oncologist! x

And then gently splash the radio area after shampooing in case some stray shampoo headed that way!

Hi there, most  radiotherapy departments will say normal shampoo is fine as long as you can avoid letting the bubbles wash over the treatment area, ie, if you are showering put your head back when you rinse. Hth.

Shampoo and Rads

Had my 1st session today I forgot to ask if it's ok to use normal shampoo in the shower? Have got simple body wash but wasn't sure about washing my hair with my normal shampoo. Thank you x
