Key Benefits

Flamigel® RT is a protective gel that guards from radiotherapy induced dermatitis. It also reduces the incidence of moist desquamation2,3 (breakdown of the skin with oozing) when your skin is treated with radiotherapy and delays its onset should it still occur.

Flamigel® RT will provide a protective barrier and will help to soothe pain1 and reduce redness. Flamigel® RT is not sticky or greasy which makes it easy to apply. This means that you can apply Flamigel® RT and get dressed without having to cover the area with a dressing or wait for it to dry.

We advise that you continue to use Flamigel® RT until 7 to 10 days after the end of radiotherapy treatment.
