My husband was diagnosed with multiple myeloma in february he started radiation almost immediately which went well and finished almost 3 weeks ago
He is now on the first 4 weekly treatment of VDT which thankfully is going well with little side effects
My question is he now has a very itchy red square from the radiation despite being on medication to suppress any itching
Has anyone experienced this square being itchy and could advise as to anything I can do to help ease it a bit or is this something we need to get checked
Welcome to the forum although I am sorry to read about your husband. I don’t have any experience of radiotherapy but thought I would reply to bump this thread to the top so that it has more chance of being seen by someone who might have some experience.
I hope things are better for your husband now and I hope the VDT treatment continues to go well with minimal side effects.

Thank you Greg
We landed up having to go through the emergency number and he was admitted as it was a reaction he took to the radiation
Few weeks of cream etc he should be sorted but thank you for your reply
Thank you for your reply
He had to be admitted in the end as I was getting worse but well on the mend now thanks
