It is VERY important that patients follow the specific use instructions included with the product. DermaRad Relief should be used LIBERALLY on skin being treated with radiation. The product should be used at least 3 times over a 24-hour period, and even on weekends. The product should not be applied within 4 hours of radiation treatment. Four tubes of product are provided with the kit. A physician should always be consulted on the use of any skin care product, including when and when not to apply product. The use of DermaRad Relief more frequently than 3 times per day is recommended, especially immediately after any event that could cause skin dryness. At least 2 hours should elapse after applying DermaRad relief before taking a shower or bath to ensure that the moisturizing ingredients in the product are allowed to penetrate. Missing even one application can cause some skin appearance changes including dryness and redness.

What It Does

Because cancer patients experience cosmetic skin care problems that are not common to others, such as extreme dryness and redness, they need a skin care product with superior technology to relieve these appearance symptoms. DermaRad Relief has been engineered with a unique blend of moisturizing oils that are similar to those the skin produces, and which are required for the skin to stay hydrated, smooth and healthy looking. In addition, DermaRad Relief contains a novel, naturally occurring anti-oxidant which has been clinically shown to relieve skin dryness and reduce redness. Additionally, DermaRad Relief contains humectants that help the skin stay moisturized and hydrated. Finally, although this formulation is extremely moisturizing and soothing, it absorbs quickly and does not leave a sticky, greasy residue on the skin’s surface. Because of its rapid absorption and gentleness, it can be applied as often as needed without sticking to clothing.

For cancer patients concerned about changes to the appearance of their skin they should always consult their doctor to obtain recommendations for the best skin care product to use to address cosmetic appearance issues. DermaRad Relief has been specifically designed to be used at least 3 times per day (over a 24 hour period). Because it is so gentle to the skin, it can be applied more than 3 times a day and should be used whenever the skin feels dry and under-moisturized.


Cancer patients undergoing radiation treatment will likely experience significant cosmetic skin problems such as dryness, skin roughness and redness. These conditions typically worsen as radiation treatments progress. To help maintain a healthy looking skin, patients need to use creams or lotions that provide extremely high levels of moisturizing oils, humectants, and antioxidants. DermaRad Relief Rehydrating Emulsion was specifically designed to meet the skin care needs of radiation patients. This unique formulation utilizes gentle, skin friendly oils and humectants resulting in a highly moisturizing lotion that is soothing and gentle to sensitive and damaged skin. In addition, the patented antioxidants in DermaRad Relief are potent inhibitors of surface free radicals.



Dermamedics' products contain the company’s patented antioxidant technology that was discovered by scientists conducting drug discovery research at a major medical school. Their five year research program focused on identifying natural compounds that could demonstrate anti-inflammatory and anti-aging activities when tested on human skin cells grown in culture. The patented antioxidant compound in DermaRad was one of over 300 natural compounds screened for beneficial effects on skin cells. The name of this compound is 4-propyl guaiacol (also known as dihydroeugenol and trademarked as Therosol®), and it is found in all DermaMedics products, including DermaRad Relief.
