Itchy skin

i completed my RT and CT for cancer of the tonsil in August 2021 and like many others  suffered from my skin around my throat and neck being burnt. I treated it with Flamazine and have rigorously moisturised and applied factor 50 when out in the sun. Fortunately my skin recovered quicky however I still have a lot of itching to the area particularly to the left and the right hand side of the back of my neck.

I thought this may have improved by now and intend to raise it at my next review but just wondered if anyone else has experienced this and what they did to relieve it.

I will also post this on theHead and Neck cancer forum.
