In brief: Show you care
Your care basket shows that you are thinking of your friend or loved one, so include anything that you think will help them feel better. They may also appreciate a good quality skin lotion for any drying or irritation of the skin secondary to external beam radiation treatments.

In brief: Body lotion
12 percent amlactin actually penetrates the lipid barrier and moisturizes from the inside out.
It comes in lotion and cream. It dos not just sit on the surface.

In brief: Hydrating ointment
Depends on body part receiving radiation.
Hydrating ointments like 100% aloevera is usually a safe bet.
