Skin changes are common during cancer therapies due to a number of reasons and are frequently the result of, surgery, chemotherapy, radiation therapy and medications.

 

Skin is the largest organ of the body. Our skin has three separate layers:  epidermis, dermis and subcutaneous tissues.  Each layer has an important job and houses many systems that work together.  Under normal circumstances, these systems interact to produce healthy skin.  During cancer therapies, these interactive systems become stressed and can cause any number of reactions.  Dehydration is at the top of this list and may cascade into various irritations,  including rashes, bruising, sensitivity to touch, changes in skin color, dilated pores, and infections.  The psychological effects many patients endure because of these conditions have their own negative impact.   Certainly, cancer patients need all their strength and well being to fight this disease.
