As a cancer patient, you are going through a lot right now. Radiation therapy is a highly effective tool against the disease, but many patients soon discover that skin changes - from mildly annoying to truly painful - can be a common side effect of radiation treatment.

These skin changes can come on gradually and intensify towards the end of treatment. Your skin in the treatment area can become red, sensitive, irritated, swollen and even painful. It may look sunburned or even tanned. After several weeks of radiation therapy your skin may be very dry and peeling, or alternatively, wet and blistered. If skin problems become especially troublesome or severe, treatment may have to be interrupted to allow the skin to heal. Finding the best, most effective skin cream is key to uninterrupted treatment and a speedy recovery.

In the past, to combat skin side effects, patients have been given skin products and skin creams that many felt were not effective enough to provide true relief of their symptoms. Fortunately, one breast cancer patient took action against her own discomfort and developed RECOVERY skin cream and got her radiation oncologist´┐Żs approval at Dana Farber Cancer Institute to use it.

A unique, non-greasy, penetrating emulsion, RECOVERY skin cream introduces rich moisturizers deep into the skin along with ingredients that soothe the itching, swelling, and pain of radiation therapy.
