Impact of cancer treatments on skin
The working group European SKIn Management in Oncology (ESKIMO) has analysed and identified the various side effects of treatments and has proposed recommendations of suitable dermo-cosmetic care products. This section is a guide of best practices and products which may help limit and prevent the cutaneous side effects of cancer treatments.
These valuable dermo-cosmetic hygiene tips will help improve patients’ daily lives during their illness.
“Daily cosmetic care is essential to protect the skin from aggressive cancer treatments. It is the key to a better quality of life during treatments.” Professor Brigitte Dréno*
Do not hesitate to ask your medical team (doctor, oncologist, dermatologist, nurses) about cutaneous effects of cancer treatments.
