I have lung cancer, and had radiation treatments 25, The radiation was done on my back and on my breast.  About 2 wks after treatment, I started to blister.  I saw the radiologist and he gave me a perscription of silver sulfadiazine, and also to use Domboro soaks.  I do this 3 times a day.I put gauze pads on the breast, the back is left uncovered.  They are about 3 inches square.  I would like to know if anyone can telll me how long it takes for this to heal?????  What else has anyone used to clear this up?

Thanks for your help  Vette

Hi - Lindiskin.com  is a wonderful website.  We ordered the compresses and they helped greatly.  It took about three weeks after treatment ended before the outer skin healed.  Good luck and God Bless you.
