A side effect of anti-cancer drugs can be changes in the water structure of the skin, resulting in rough, dry skin. Also, when cancer patients are exposed to frequent radiation treatments, they may experience a degree of ‘radiation burn’ that leaves their skin raw and tender. Another ongoing concern for cancer patients is the appropriate treatment of bed or wheelchair sores.
PHLODERM® can help cancer patients minimize some of these painful side effects of their treatment. With frequent application, the skin will become and remain soft and smooth during medical procedures, benefiting both the patient and the clinician.
