Question from Ipivovar: How do I protect skin during radiation treatment?
Answers - Carolyn Chang In general, you want to keep the skin moist. Moisturize and keep it clean. Don't use perfumed soap—if you can, find an anti-allergenic soap—and avoid the sun at all costs. For more details, I would really defer to a radiation therapist.
