is anyone able to recommend any creams for very sore, red, tender skin on head and face? Assuming it’s from the chemo
When I started my chemo for SCLC one on he chemo nurses recommended Udderly Smooth (with Urea). You can get it on the well known on-lining shopping company. However I have just looked on the Udderly Smooth website and they now do an Oncology Care package. I was luckky and didn't get the dry skin so gave my cream to someone who did.
Worth a try?
I haven’t had problems with skin but a friend recommended Rescue Remedy Cream when I started treatment in case I encountered problems. She used it when getting Radiotherapy. I know not the same thing but maybe worth a try.
