What should I do if my skin starts itching? 

Minor and moderate dry and itchy skin can be relieved through moisturisers such as Lyonsleaf Calendula Cream. If you do find that creams are not relieving your symptoms speak to your treating doctor or nurse. 

Can my skin still itch without it being dry (and vice-versa)?

Yes, dry skin doesn’t have to be itchy, and itchy skin does not have to be dry. In the cancer setting, dry skin is a side-effect of radiotherapy and some chemotherapies, so it is common for itchy skin to also be a related side-effect. However, some medications, chemotherapies and cancers themselves can cause the skin to be become irritated, even if it is not dry.

Itchy skin related to treatment or medication usually resolves once the treatment is finished or the medication has gone out of the body’s system. If it is due to cancer, the itch may only go once the cancer is treated. 

What is calendula?

Calendula is a type of oil that is extracted from the petals of the calendula flower. Calendula is known for its soothing, anti-inflammatory and healing properties. Although no direct clinical studies have been conducted to show calendula effects, anecdotally, it is found to be very successful in soothing dry, sensitive skin. 

When can I use Lyonsleaf Calendula cream?

Lyonsleaf calendula cream can be used on most skin types, but it should not be applied to broken or infected skin.

Calendula cream has been shown to be particularly effective in relieving the symptoms of dry, itchy skin following radiotherapy. It can also help soothe sensitive skin, or those whose skin has become dry and flaky due to chemotherapy.

Is Lyonsleaf calendula cream waterproof?

No, it is not, it is best applied to dry clean skin.

Is calendula cream safe to use while pregnant?

Although calendula cream is a natural bi-product of the calendula flower, it is always best to discuss products with your GP before using them, especially if you do find your dry and irritated skin becomes worse when pregnant.
