Lotions Provide Relief for Mesothelioma Patients
If you’ve been diagnosed with mesothelioma and are currently undergoing treatment, you’ve been thrust into a whole new world. In addition to the emotional upheaval that comes with a terminal illness, you are also enduring the physical discomforts that are an unfortunate side effect of radiation therapy and chemotherapy.
Though most people associate these treatments with hair loss, fatigue and nausea, these are not the only impacts that these life-extending medications can have. The skin is the body’s largest organ, and it is particularly vulnerable to moisture loss and damage resulting from cancer treatment. Skin can turn red and painful, breaking out in rashes, itching, peeling, and becoming terribly dry to the point of cracking. The same can happen with nails, which may turn yellow and brittle.
Mesothelioma is an illness that brings tremendous hardship and emotional turmoil. It is difficult enough for a mesothelioma patient to deal with the fact that their sickness was preventable, a result of asbestos exposure that could have been prevented. There is no reason for them to suffer any more physical misery than is absolutely necessary. If you are a mesothelioma patient or are providing care to somebody undergoing chemotherapy and radiation therapy for mesothelioma, relief is available. There are several lotions and creams that are specifically designed for cancer treatments. Many have been developed by cancer survivors. Here are the ones that have received the best reviews:
Hylunia Lotions and Creams
Hylunia has created a line of products specifically targeting the inflammation, dryness, itching, and pain caused by chemotherapy. The ingredients that have been used in their formulations. The line includes a gentle cleanser and a healing cream.
Atopalm Intensive Moisturizing Cream
The Atopalm line of skincare products contains MLE, a plant-derived complex that replicates the skin lipid lamellar structure that is often broken down by chemotherapy and radiation therapy. MLE helps to protect the skin until its own natural structure repairs itself. The Atopalm Intensive Moisturizing Cream can be used on the entire body and the face.
Dr. Cynthia Bailey Green Tea Antioxidant Skin Therapy
After her own battle with breast cancer, California dermatologist Dr. Cynthia Bailey developed a special line of skin care products designed to offer relief following chemotherapy treatment. Her green tea polyphenol antioxidant restores the skin’s ability to boost and repair itself and relieves inflammation.
Lindi Body Lotion
Lindi Snyder is another cancer survivor who was frustrated by the lack of available relief for her skin’s dryness and discomfort. She developed her own line of products that were free of the exfoliants, , peeling agents, acids and other irritants found in most skin care products, replacing them with ingredients chosen to promote healing and soothe inflammation.
Recovery Skin Cream
Recovery skin relief was developed by a breast cancer patient whose radiation therapy treatments results in severe burns and intense sensitivity. Dissatisfied with the products recommended by her physician, she worked with her husband (a chemist) to developed this product, which is non-staining, easily applied, and offers effective relif of dry, itchy, skin.
