During your treatment you may be more vulnerable to infection. You should use new products and store them properly to keep them away from bacteria.
Your treatment may cause some temporary changes in your nails such as, grooves, brittleness, discoloration, and heightened sensitivity. We recommend taking a few precautions.
Do not cut your cuticles.
Use cuticle cream to prevent dryness.
Wear gloves while house cleaning.
Avoid artificial nails.
During chemotherapy and radiation therapy, your skin may become dry and sensitive. We offer you tips on how to care for your skin better.
If you notice that you are experiencing dry skin, you should wash your face with mild soap or cleansing creams and use only lukewarm water. A good moisturizer is very important during this time. Also, a chap stick or lip balm is recommended.
It is extremely important that you do not wash off any marks that your doctor or radiotherapist may have applied to your skin. Eventually these marks will fade away. Use only warm water on the treatment area and gently pat dry. Avoid exposing that area to direct sunlight. Check with your doctor before using lotions or sunscreens on that area. If your skin feels irritated after treatment, a doctor recommended moisturizer can be used.
