Effects of Radiation on Anal and Vaginal tissue.
Receving Proton therapy for anal cancer has caused me to develop hemorrhoids and sore, raw places around the anus and just inside the vaginal wall.
Aside from Sitz Baths with Epsom Salt, I’ve been using Aquafor on the skin lesions. Does anyone have any experience or a recommendation for what to use on the vaginal tissue to promote healing and help with the itch and burn?
Is Aquafor safe to use on the soft vaginal tiusue? I’ve considered aloe but am concerned about introducing any product that may cause a vaginal infection.
