During radiation, chemotherapy, or hormone therapy, your body is working overtime to fight cancer. There are some things you can do to help cope with the impact.

You may notice your hands and feet are dry or cracked, or your nails feel brittle. Most often a bit of TLC can help you deal with these annoyances. (However, if the areas become painful or inflamed, consult your doctor.) First off, keep feet cool, dry and clean and don’t pumice or scrub too harshly. Use nail clippers gently, so you don’t cut the skin. If you get professional manicures or buff-shines, do not allow your cuticles to be cut – and insist on fresh implements and soaking solution. Finally, good oral hygiene is also important during treatment, and you should consult your dentist for more information on dental and oral care.
