Hello all.

My husband is due to receive five consecutive days of radiotherapy on a small area of his shoulder and I've been told by a friend that the area is likely to get very sore.

Is there anything..... cream, aloe vera, ice pack, etc that may help with the the pain please?

Thanks, much appreciated xx

  • Hi , I had a total of 45 Radiotherapy Sessions with some being rather strong.

    I had no pain but did have lots of dry skin but I was given various creams (depending on the position) by my Radiotherapy Team as and when I needed them.

    Diprobase, Aloe Vera, Hydromol Cream but do get home to ask what would be best.
