There is currently no standard treatment for radiation-induced skin reactions. However, to help PREVENT these reactions, which can be very painful, a product called Mepitel Film can be used prophylactically, which has been clinically proven to decrease the severity of radiotherapy skin reactions by 92%.
The key to preventing skin reactions is to use a protective film dressing on the skin from day 1 of radiotherapy and continue until 2-4 weeks after treatment has stopped. This protects fragile skin from daily friction of clothes and moisture, allowing it to heal undisturbed and rocover from treatment. When Mepitel Film is used in this way, as part of radiotherapy, it is clinically proven to be highly effective at preventing skin reactions.
Mepitel Film is ultra thin, soft and highly conformable transparent film dressing with Safetac Technology, that offers gentle, breathable protection for vulnerable skin.
