Hello. My sister has just begun laser radiation to one breast. She has to have this done every day for 2 minutes for 60 day. I am wondering is you have any suggestions on how to treat her ski so that she does not end up with a painful burn?

Hi Anon

Thanks for your post and for looking out for your sister. We wish her the best with her treatment.

We have a video she can watch on what happens to skin during radiation and a lot of advice on skin care. Find it here:

I hope this helps.
