Introduction to Photon Gard Lotion

Photon Gard Lotion comprises radiation therapy lotion. It is indicated to treat skin damage caused by radiotherapy for cancer treatment. Radiation therapy refers to treating cancer using radiation for specific localized cancer cells. While this treatment is highly preferred to alleviate symptoms and provide palliative care, it tends to cause side effects that damage the skin. The ingredients in Photon Gard Lotion, such as aloe vera, vitamin E, and jojoba oil, help to moisturize and protect the skin, reducing dryness and itching. 

Some creams also contain ingredients that help to reduce inflammation and promote healing, such as hydrocortisone or calendula. Patients with certain medical conditions, such as diabetes or immune system disorders, may be at increased risk of skin infections. They should consult their healthcare provider before using Photon Gard Lotion. Patients should not apply the cream immediately before radiation treatment, as it may interfere with the effectiveness of the treatment. It is important to avoid getting the cream in your eyes, mouth, or nose and to wash your hands thoroughly after applying the cream.
