Hi guys

im looking for a bit of advice. My husbands cancer has spread to his liver and because of this his skin is itching constantly. He’s been given creams of the gp but they’re not very good. Anyone got any tips please xx

  • Hello  

    I just spotted your post so I hope you don't mind me dropping in with a couple of suggestions as I am on Hormone Therapy for Prostate Cancer and I had itchy skin for about 4/5 months - it's awful!!

    The two creams that worked for me were:

    * AproDerm Emollient Cream - I still have this on prescription - it's available from that online store named after an African river.

    * Child's Farm Baby Moisturiser - Wildly available.

    I know we are all different - but I hope one of these helps.

    Best wishes - Brian.
