What is Radiation Dermatitis?

Radiation dermatitis, is a common skin condition (a.k.a. skin toxicity) in head, neck, throat, skin, and breast cancer patients receiving radiotherapy. Patients receive small doses of ionizing radiation to kill cancer cells and shrink tumors. Prophylactic (preventative) use of prescription creams can help delay the onset of symptoms and reduce the severity of symptoms. Treating dermatitis with products like KeraStat Cream will help manage the symptoms of radiation dermatitis:

  • Redness
  • Soreness
  • Pigmentation Changes
  • Itching
  • Flaking
  • Peeling
  • Blistering
  • Ulceration
  • Necrosis

    How KeraStat® Cream is Best for Radiation Wounds

    Your doctor will typically suggest that you keep the radiated area clean with warm water and fragrance-free soap. They may also suggest prophylactic, preventative, use of products to reduce or delay the effects of radiation wounds or burns. There are currently no known ways to prevent radiation dermatitis; however, there are products on the market for radiation wound care. Consult with your doctor to see if applying KeraStat® Cream after your first radiation dose is right for you and your wound healing after radiation therapy journey.

    How do I Apply KeraStat® Cream

    • Apply after your first radiation treatment. Prepare the treated area by cleaning with warm water and mild, fragrance-free soap.
    • After the first day, continue to apply two times a day
    • KeraStat® Cream is a medical product. It is not meant to replace your daily moisturizing routine. Over the counter (OTC) creams can be used in combination with KeraStat® Cream.
    • Squeeze a small pea sized dab from the tube and cover the treatment area and surrounding skin.
    • Lightly spread to form a thin layer over the area of skin treated and edges of skin around the radiated area.
    • There is no need to over-use. A pea sized dab should cover an area the size of your hand. If pilling (balling) occurs, the cream was applied too thickly. Do not apply KeraStat® Cream four hours before a radiation session.

    Radiation burn, or radiation dermatitis, can be a side effect of radiotherapy treatments for head, neck, throat, skin, and breast cancers. It is estimated that more than 95% of the 4 million Americans receiving radiation therapy for cancer will develop radiation burns to their skin. Symptoms typically include redness, soreness, pigmentation changes, itching, flaking, peeling, desquamation, blistering, ulceration, or necrosis. These burns can be managed with products like KeraStat® Cream that contain keratin proteins.
