Here are some of the more common types of treatment people may receive for cancer, some possible side effects and some products that might help to manage the visible effects of treatment. Remember, always consult your medical team and review any information provided by specialists about looking after your skin before using new products. It’s important that you try new things one at a time so if you have any reaction you can easily tell which products may be causing it.


Chemotherapy can cause patches of red, sore or peeling skin (particularly on the palms of the hands and soles of the feet), and you might find your skin is more sensitive to the sun. It can also cause sore cuticles which can lead them to be quite red. Please consult your medical team if you have any questions.
