Skin Issues During Cancer Treatment

December 05, 2020

Some battling a cancer diagnosis will only have one form of treatment. Others will have a combination of treatment methods, including surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation. Cancer treatment targets rapidly growing cells. Unfortunately, in addition to affecting fast-growing cancer cells, treatment can affect the rapidly growing healthy cells in our skin, hair, and fingernails. Skin related side effects can include:
  • rash
  • itchy dry skin
  • sensitivity to sunlight
  • painful redness and burning
These skin related side effects from cancer treatment can range from a minor irritation to extreme discomfort. Fortunately, there are specialty skin care products available for even the most sensitive skin when undergoing treatment for cancer. Skin is our largest organ, making up 16% of our body. Taking care of one's skin is perhaps one of the most important, basic ways to improve comfort and quality of life. Lindi Skin knows the unique skin care needs of those battling cancer.
