In brief: Ointments

Radiation burns to the skin should be treated conservatively with steroid ointments if they can help.
. If the damage is severe, resection with skin grafting or pedicle flaps may have to be employed.

Sometimes, if more severe, your physician can use topical burn creams like aquaphor or silvadene.
