Re: Cream for radiotherapy

Hi,

i asked that question yesterday at my set up appointment. Radiographer told me to leave a two hour window either side of treatment before applying new cream. So, with my sessions being late afternoon I am still ok to apply morning and before bed 🙂

Re: Cream for radiotherapy

I used Aveeno cream right the way through radiotherapy, didn't wash it off before sessions and had no problem. I rubbed it well in after a bath and a few hours before going to the hospital, and again before getting into bed at night. Just rubbing it well in should be sufficient.

 

Don't worry about it.

Cream for radiotherapy

I am halfway brought radiotherapy, 10 more to go.

 

I have been using Aveeno cream to help with rash and soreness, but does anyone know if I should wash it off before the actual rariotherapy? Or doesn't it matter if it's still there? I don't want it to help me 'cook.'

 

Perplexed!
