Skin Cancer Treatments Can Cause Compromised Skin
Compromised skin, where the barrier has been disrupted becomes red, inflamed, dry, itchy and irritated, is something we try to avoid at all costs. Except in the case of a skin cancer treatment. Often times, skin cancer treatments, in this case a topical chemotherapy cream, can leave the skin compromised. While the cancer treatment drug is working to kill the cancer cells, it is throwing the skin out of balance. Luckily, we are equipped to work with clients, who have been cleared by their oncologist, to restore balance to the skin and rebuild the barrier.
2 Advanced Technology Treatments After Efudex Topical Chemotherapy
“Efudex or Carac (5-fluorouracil), is a highly effective treatment for pre-cancerous lesions such as Actinic Keratoses (AK). As an alternative treatment to surgery, this topical chemotherapy drug can also treat some superficial basal and squamous cell carcinomas. Fluorouracil is also used for other skin issues including squamous cell carcinoma in situ, warts, psoriasis of the nail, keratoacanthoma, and vitiligo.
Fluorouracil belongs to the category of chemotherapy drugs called antimetabolites and is cell-cycle specific (S-phase). Mechanism of action 5-FU acts in several ways, but principally as a thymidylate synthase (TS) inhibitor. Interrupting the action of this enzyme blocks synthesis of the pyrimidine thymidylate (dTMP), which is a nucleotide required for DNA replication.” Morag Currin, Oncology Training International
The patent had to apply Efudex Topical Chemotherapy as an annual treatment for a previously diagnosed skin cancer. He was cleared by his oncologist to receive a treatment. He presented with red, inflamed, dry skin that was easily irritated and sore on a regular basis.
