Well, half way through my radiotherapy and my sore, splitting skin is apparently a staph infection. I'm now on salt compresses, steroid cream, oral antibiotics and nurofen. I know it's not major, but it sucks and it's p***ing me off!
Has anybody else been through this? What did you do?
The BC nurses and oncologists are being fab and doing everything they can to help.
I'd love to know if others have had it and how it went? How long it took to clear up etc.
Any contributions welcome. I'm feeling a bit sorry for myself :(
So, Day 7 of radiotherapy and already my skin is splitting. It's like a heat rash under and between my breasts and is a bit uncomfortable.
Apparently it's quite common, but usually not so soon. The BC nurses have suggested salt water bathing. I'm doing that plus continuing to moisturise with QV. I'm keen to know of any other tips to keep it from getting any worse - or, better still, get rid of it!
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks all :)
