Question

I have very dry skin on the side of my face/neck where I had radiation. What kind of lotion can I use on this that would actually help?

Answer

Alexander Lin, MD, Radiation Oncologist at Penn Medicine, responds:

As long as the area is completely healed, you might find a mild lotions such as Eucerin to be of help. If in doubt, feel free to call the doctor's office and ask the nurse to give you a recommendation.
