Update. Ointment prescribed by radiation oncologist was Silvadene cream 1% for the most badly burned area, about a 3" X 4" area on the front, which blistered and peeled; and Aquaphor for the area about 6 inches around it which just got red and itched and a similar area that developed on my left buttock. The Silvadene relieved the burning pain on the 3 X 4 area almost immediately. The Aquaphor relieved the itching. I now have a nice dark tan area on the front and on my buttock. While, it would be nice to have a whole body tan like that, I think I am going to pass.
