Cancer Radiation Dermatitis
How to use
Wash and dry the affected area and apply a dime to a quarter size amount depending on the size of the treatment area, do not apply one hour prior to treatment.
To get the maximum benefit of Miaderm, start at the initiation of radiation therapy and continue using three times daily until two weeks after radiation treatments have completed. Generally a 4oz. tube of Miaderm Radiation Relief lotion will last approximate 2 to 3 weeks with regular usage. We recommend 3 tubes for a course of 6 to 7 weeks of treatment.

Formulated using ingredients that are supported by the science.
The reason radiation treatments for cancer are more effective than ever is science. Doctors use methods that are known to be effective. We follow the same common-sense approach for Miaderm radiation relief and Miaderm-L. We use ingredients shown through scientific research to reduce the occurrence and severity of radiation dermatitis, delay its onset and minimize treatment interruptions.
Calendula (>10%) – In a study of radiation therapy patients, application of calendula ointment resulted in far fewer occurrences of dermatitis than in the group using a traditional substance. Calendula users also experienced less radiation-induced pain and fewer breaks in treatment.
Hyaluronate (>1%) – In another study of radiation therapy patients, hyaluronate cream significantly reduced the incidence of high-grade skin reactions, delayed their onset and reduced their severity. The study also noted hyaluronate’s association with faster recovery from skin symptoms.
Aqueous Cream – In a third study, patients who applied a topical aqueous cream throughout the duration of their radiation treatment and for two weeks afterward experienced much less dry desquamation than those who used aloe vera alone.
Aloe Vera (>10%) – In a fourth study, patients who applied aloe vera after applying a mild soap solution experienced initial skin irritation two weeks later than those who used the soap but not the aloe. The study noted that this suggests aloe vera may have a protective effect.
Radiation dermatitis is common and uncomfortable… and can interrupt your treatment.
You may not yet know it, but your radiation oncologist does: radiation therapy’s effects on skin are unpleasant and uncomfortable… and the most common side effects of radiation treatment. But the most significant problem associated with radiation dermatitis is that it can force interruptions in your treatment, which can increase your risk of cancer recurrences. Uncomfortable or painful skin can also result in missed treatments, which must be avoided.
One purpose. One focus.
Scientifically formulated to soothe, protect and moisturize the skin, Miaderm radiation relief and Miaderm-L were created specifically for radiation patients. While helpful beyond treatment, Miaderm has no objectives other than to lessen the effects of radiation on your skin, prevent treatment interruptions in your and ensure your safety. Our compassion and dedication are why we keep our margins low, helping keep Miaderm affordable.
How long does it take for radiation burns to go away?
While these wounds may look and feel like burns, the term is a misnomer, since the treatment does not actually burn the skin. For it to heal, the skin needs time to regenerate, a process that may take two to four weeks for mild reactions, or several months or more for serious injuries.
What is in Miaderm?
This medication is used as a moisturizer to treat or prevent dry, rough, scaly, itchy skin and minor skin irritations (e.g., diaper rash, skin burns from radiation therapy). Emollients are substances that soften and moisturize the skin and decrease itching and flaking.
Will Miaderm interfere with the efficacy of radiation?
No. Miaderm Radiation Relief is completely safe to use for radiation therapy, though not at the time of treatment, it is clinically shown to help promote normal skin recovery.
More specifically use after treatment, use at bedtime and the third time not to interfere with anything laying on the skin at the time of treatment, not to be used one hour prior to treatment. Begin using a week before treatment begins 3 times daily throughout treatment, plus continue use for the two weeks post-treatment.
Can Miaderm be used on all types of skin?
Yes. Miaderm Radiation Relief can be used on all skin types anywhere on the skin surface where the skin is being treated with radiation. Not recommended for mucous membranes.
Is Aloe Vera good for radiation burns?
There is some evidence to support its use for minor skin problems and burns. Some people with cancer use aloe vera to help heal and soothe burns caused by their radiotherapy treatment.
Is it only for external use?
Yes, avoid contact with your eyes (If contact does occur rinse thoroughly with cool water), It is for external use only, do not use on open wounds, cuts, infected skin, mouth, genitals or mucous membranes.
Is it normal for it to sting?
If you are already experiencing the burn you will experience an uncomfortable sting during the initial application it will last for 45 seconds and up to 2 minutes, though that should be the worst of it.
