Can i stop Radiation for a few days?

Hi, My mom just finished her 5th week of radiation and Chemo for the floor of mouth SCC cancer.  Her skin is so bad and she is in so much pain she wants to stop or take a break.  Does anyone have advice? has anyone done this? ( stop for a break) and does this affect the outcome? Her tumour was removed by neck dissection and flap reconstruction. then after 6 weeks, they started her Chemo once a week and radiation 5x week. 

she has 5 more sessions but I don't know how she is going to make it. She is in so much pain that she is shaking. We have tried all creams, suggested by doctors, Friends, internet and another place you can imagine. I feel so so helpless. any advice is very much appreciated it.
