It’s important to protect your skin from even small cuts, grazing or scraping. your skin. Your body will not be able to fight germs off as well as it normally would while you are going through chemotherapy. These are easy ways for germs to enter your body causing infection.

Keep cuts and scrapes clean and dry and covered. It’s extremely important if you have Lymphoedema. Check with your medical team if the skin around the area becomes red, warm, swollen, or increasingly painful or begins to drain yellow or greenish fluid (pus).  

REMEMBER to NOT just cover and forget. Continued care to the wound is also important. Keep area clean and apply new bandaging.  Change immediately if it gets dirty or wet.
